MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- Stacy Griffin says the first venomous snake showed up at her home on Sycamore drive last Wednesday, then another Saturday; one more on Sunday and a fourth Cottonmouth Moccasin Monday that her husband Steve killed.
"It fanned up at him and everything. The animal control came out. One of them was a couple of feet long and the other was about a foot long," Stacy Griffin said.
"The last snake that I killed was about where that back tire is," Steve Griffin said.
After spotting the first snake, Steve went to Lowe's and bought snake repelling granules to put in the yard.
"We've put that out so far and we still had two more snakes," Steve Griffin said.
Not a surprise to wildlife biologist Mark Sasser with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. He says they're not effective.
"That's not a very good deterrent for snakes," Sasser said.
