Snakes Swarm Saskatchewan

That snakes turn up in people’s basements at the onset of winter is a known thing, but a house near Regina, Saskatchewan has had a few more than usual. Last month it was reported that 102 Plains Garter Snakes had been removed from the home; those snakes were relocated to a nature preserve. Last week it was reported that another 119 snakes had since been removed the same house, and that may not be the last of them. A beekeeper has expressed interest in taking in the snakes; he wants them for pest control, which won’t work for a number of reasons. Meanwhile, people near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan’s other major city, are reporting an uptick in fall snake sightings.
