ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

The St. Tammany Parish Fire Department District 12 wants to remind people that warmer weather brings – SNAKES!

A firefighter found a curled-up snake in a pair of bunker pants at one of the fire stations.

“Luckily, he was seen before a call and didn’t decide to curl up in the boots,” District 12 said on its Facebook page.

For those of you who like to leave your tennis shoes, gardening equipment and toys in the yard or on the porch, make sure you take a close look before using the items.

Because if it is not a snake, it could be a – SPIDER!

Be careful out there and be safe this summer.
