TYLER — In East Texas, many are having problems with snakes coming into their homes looking for water.
Angela Wallace with the Klein Animal Shelter in Jacksonville tells KETK, they've been getting a lot of calls about it.
They've even had trouble there around the shelter.
"We're seeing a lot of species we don't typically see. Very quiet snakes that don't want to be around people, coming up into populated areas and in people's homes. Even here at the shelter, we've found several poisonous snakes," Wallace said.
Wallace tells KETK if you have a spot in your home succeptible to snakes, you might consider filling a small pail with water and putting it way out in your yard so they do have access to water - and don't end up where you don't want them.
