Rattlesnake safely returned after ULethbridge misadventure

May 13, 2019

A rattlesnake that slithered its way into a University of Lethbridge office has been captured and returned to its den, reports CBC. Ryan Heavy Head, known locally as the “Snake Man,” responded to a call from university security who said the reptile had fallen through a grate on the sixth-floor mechanical room and found its way under a faculty member's desk on the fourth floor. “The snakes are connected to their places of birth … so what they've found in studies that if you relocate them away from that den a lot of times they're vulnerable to predators,” Heavy Head added. CBC (AB)
