A high-school in the village of Birinchi in the southern region of Kyrgyzstan has been shut down because it has been inundated with snakes. Since the start of spring, 30 or more snakes have been found inside the school each and every day.
A spokesman for the Kyrgyz Emergency Situations Ministry told media Tuesday that the snakes pose a health treat. Interfax reports that the school has 20 teachers and 144 students who are staying at home. There are about a dozen or more types of snakes in the region and officials have not identified which snakes are involved.
Parents and other residents of the village requested the problem be addressed by public health inspectors with a veterinary organization, but to date there has been no solution found to rid the school and school property of the slithering reptiles. There is no timeline on when the school will be able to reopen but officials say they are working on it.
There has been no complaints from students about the closure.
