Missouri home overrun by slithering, slimy creatures

A Minnesota woman and her two children are left with few options after she and her children unknowingly moved into a home that is overrun with snakes.

Angie Whitley says she spent years stacking up money for a down payment on a home for her family.

Before purchasing the infested home, the single mother told WCCO that she had the house inspected and did several walkthroughs.

But it wasn't even an hour after closing the deal that Whitley said she stumbled upon a surprise in her new bedroom.

"One quickly turned into three, four, five. Today, it's six months later. Now I'm about 95 snakes that I've found inside my house." Whitley said.

And there are even more outside of her family's new residence.

Whitley soon came to find that there was a garter snake den underneath her floors, which sits near a marsh close by.

The mother and nurse says she shoveled out more than $13,000 in efforts to rid her home of the invasive house guests. She even tore apart her basement floor to seal potential cracks and littered the ground with snake traps.

A local pest control company, known as Adam's Pest Control, has since donated its services to the family to help locate and assess the snake den.

Whitley has also hired a lawyer and plans to enter into arbitration with the previous owners of the split-level home.
