Snake expelled from Chase High School

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Several snakes have been seen in places they don’t belong — the rain-saturated ground has flushed the rodents out of their burrows and their predators followed them.

A large black snake was found beside a walkway at Chase High School. Rutherford School Resource Officer Cpl. Jeff Smith removed the snake. The large black snake was released into to the woods.
