Severus Snake

A snake walks into a bar and the bartender asks, “How’d you do that?” And you thought we were out of snake jokes…we are just getting started with snake season!

The Hogwarts Sorting Hat would put our Animal Control Officers in Slytherin. They are obviously fluent in Parseltongue, as they communicate so well with serpents. We are affectionately calling this little guy Severus Snake.

Severus Snake is believed to be an adult DeKay’s Brown Snake. He (or possibly more appropriately the homeowners) was rescued this morning from the basement of a home in Stratford Place by Deputy K.L. Busch. He is now munching on grubs and spiders in a garden near you.

Have a snake problem? You can “asp” for our help anytime. You don’t have to be a good “adder” to recognize that’s two snakes this week for our great Animal Control Officers. Thank you Deputy Busch!
