Sssstill there: more than 200 slithering snakes pulled out of home near Regina

More than 200 snakes have been removed from a rural home outside Regina.

REGINA — More than 200 snakes have been removed from a rural home outside Regina.

And there are still more slithering inside.

Megan Lawrence with the Salthaven West wildlife centre says she helped the homeowners capture 102 plains garter snakes last month.

They were freed at a nearby nature preserve.

The family recently caught another 119 snakes and, because it’s too cold for them to hibernate underground, they’ll spend the winter at the centre.

Lawrence says the reptiles wriggled into the old farm house through cracks in its foundation, where more are still hiding.
