Family is afraid to leave their home at night because property is overrun with copperhead snakes

That’s a lot of snakes!

A Texas woman is scared to leave her house because her property is overrun with copperhead snakes.

‘If one got in the house or in the cars, I would have to move,’ said Weatherford homeowner Vicki Barnett.

‘I really would.’

Barnett told NBC that she and her husband killed 30 snakes last weekend and killed another on Tuesday night.

The Barnetts have been battling a skin-crawling snake problem ever since they moved into their home two years ago.

‘I nearly stepped on it and then I just ran and waited for my husband to come outside and kill them,’ said Barnett.

The snakes are most active at night and Barnett keeps a rifle on her when going outside should she see any slithering towards her.
