Lost Snake near the Lakes!!!

Postby danwalko » Tue Jul 26, 2011 7:40 pm

Hey everyone...

It might be a good idea to keep an eye out for this snake that someone on Ameda Drive in Jacobus recently lost. The thing is 9 FEET LONG and likes to climb trees and drop onto it's prey! If you see it....call 911! The Parks Dept is very concerned the snake is loose in William Kain Park. Check out the articles from the York Dispatch.

Dan, maybe the Parks Dept. will let you go out for a night ride to look for it?

No thanks Matt! Maybe we can get Jim Kraft the "Snake Whisperer" to look for it. Jim...how about it! You can find it.

I would love to Dan, but I will need someone to go along with me for bait. You In? There is a little known fact that if you do encounter a snake in the wild the best way to make the snake go away and not attack you is to quickly remove all your clothing and jump up and down. This works on all snakes like the big black snakes at rocky ridge, bao's and pythons at the lakes and rattle snakes at Michaux. Even if you don't even see the snake but suspect there might be one in the grass, the bushes or in a rock garden it is still recommended you use this technique and use it often.
Do the thing that is hard to do and the power will come.

Good news!! The Parks were notified that the owner of the snake found it in the ceiling of their basement. Apparently, it never made it out of the house. The Lakes are safe again!
