Sacramento school shuts following snake infestation

A school in Sacramento, California has had to shut its doors after developing a snake infestation. No-one has been bitten, but five five Northern Pacific Rattle Snakes have reportedly been found over the past month, some of them in classrooms.

Classes at the school have been cancelled for the week and now won’t be back in session until after the Thanksgiving vacation. Meanwhile, measures will likely be taken to deal with the snakes.

The first snake was a baby rattler found in a weights room in late October. Since then, others have been found in a chemistry classroom, outside a greenhouse, by the wood shop and, in the most recent case, outside the front of the school.
