Pile of snakes found in Arkansas Walmart parking lot

Posted April 27

— A pile of about 40 snakes was found in a Walmart parking lot in Arkansas, according to NBC affiliate KAIT.

According to Detective Jack Hailey with the Paragould Police Department, they received the call about the snakes Sunday night.

“At first, they were saying the snakes were copperheads and water moccasins,” said Hailey. “But, after we got one of our officers who is apparently some sort of snake whisperer, we learned that they were non-venomous garden snakes.”

Police said it appeared someone had captured the snakes and dumped them in a pile.
