First it was Snakes on a Plane now the slithery reptiles are taking over the Sieg in Lamar, Pennsylvania. An e-mail sent out by Lock Haven University’s Facilities Planning and Scheduling Coordinator, Marchal Rote, stated that a faculty member of the university had observed both copperhead snakes and rattlesnakes around certain areas of the Sieg, a location used by the university for team building exercises amongst its faculty, staff, and sometimes students.
Dr. Barry Overton reported snake sightings near the Sieg’s kitchen door; the fire pit; and on the wood, leaves and other debris piles near the bridge. These locations will be frequented by those faculty and staff attending the meeting at the Sieg.
Rote deduced in her e-mail that because of the cooling temperatures in the central Pennsylvania area that the snakes may be coming out to sun themselves out in the open.
Anyone that had planned on attending the meeting this weekend at the Sieg is advised to use extreme caution when navigating throughout the area.
