article image100+ snakes found in home in Canada

By Owen Weldon     Oct 23, 2014 in Odd News
More than 100 snakes were found in a home in Canada. The garter snakes were first discovered in the basement, but they managed to make their way to other parts of the home.
On Tuesday Megan Lawrence, of Salthaven West Wildlife Rehab, said that they were finding the snakes everywhere, including in the cracks of the foundation, under boxes and under the floor. She said they were picking them up in pillow cases and then putting them in buckets so they could count them.
Lawrence was called in to remove the 102 snakes at the home in Regina, according to Fox.
According to CBC, Lawrence said the snakes weren't hiding, nor were they moving that quickly because it looked like some of them settled in for the winter. She said the snakes were already starting to go into hibernation.
Lawrence said that she and her partner had to use about five pillowcases, and then they separated them by size. The largest one was around 3 feet long, while the shortest one was around 9 inches long.
Dr. Ray Poulin, a snake expert at a local museum, said that it was common for snakes to get into houses this time of the year.
Dr. Poulin also said that if snakes have set up shop in a basement, then they are going to want to keep coming back year after year.
