A homeowner who called in a removal company after spotting ‘a few snakes’ under his home was left speechless – when officials pulled out 45. The man called Big Country Snake Removal in Texas after crawling underneath his home to try and fix his TV cable in strong winds. He said he saw a few snakes, so quickly crawled out and contacted the company for help.

Workers later pulled dozens of rattlesnakes from underneath the home near Albany, about 150 miles west of Dallas, according to the company’s Facebook page. Video shows numerous large snakes coiled up as workers use long poles to pull the animals out.

Snakes will begin slithering out from underneath Texas homes as the weather warms up, increasing the risk of snakebites, said Nathan Hawkins, the owner of Big Country Snake Removal. ‘They’ll start emerging, and then what they’re going to do is they’re going to start trying to find food. And then they’re going to start breeding,’ Hawkins said. ‘A lot of people are getting snakes in their yard, and it’s because basically the habitat has been destroyed around the housing developments.’

Hawkins told Abilene TV station KTXS that his company removes about 2,000 snakes per year. ‘Most people get bit when people are trying to harm or harass the snake,’ Hawkins said.

State wildlife officials say that about 7,000 people are bitten by venomous snakes each year in the United States but very few bites are fatal. Officials say that on average, one to two people die in Texas each year from a venomous snake bite.
