They're coming into his yard at an alarming rate, probably from a nearby creek bed. But Shawn Schreiner said when he told animal control about his snake infestation, he was told he was on his own.

"The snakes started this spring, and they've been going strong even since," Schreiner said.

"I've probably watched too many movies, because you know what happens in 'Anaconda,'" he said.

No anacondas yet, although he did find a four-foot snakeskin, probably from a bull snake.

"I don't have children - I'm just afraid of snakes," Schreiner said. "Maybe I'm a big baby, but I don't want them around here."
