Rattlesnakes slither into college building

OGDEN, Utah, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Officials at Weber State University in Utah said four rattlesnakes have slithered into a building in separate incidents during the past week.

Weber State University spokesman John Kowalewski said the snakes were found on separate days in different areas of the Receiving and Distribution Building, KSTU-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Thursday.


"This is the first time we've heard of rattlesnakes inside one of the buildings. With the change in the weather and it getting cold, the snakes are coming down the nearby hillside and finding a warm place, they think, for winter," Kowalewski said.

Experts said the snakes were likely heading for nearby hills to hibernate and got side-tracked when they found the building in their way.
