There was more than a little shock —and no time for biblical references —when a snake was recently discovered in the management office at Paradise Cemetery, San Fernando.
Now workers are hoping plans to rebuild their office will be completed before more critters take advantage of the deficiencies in the building to “come visiting.”
On November, 12 workers found the snake curled up in a cupboard that supports their drinking water dispenser.
One worker, who did not wish to be named, said the snake was “relocated permanently.”
However, the way in which it had gained entry to the office and found a comfort zone has caused workers to worry that more and larger of his relatives may be around.
They said in the past, they have discovered large black toads in the office also.
They noted infrastructural issues in the office including a large hole in the ceiling which causes water to leak onto workers whenever it rains.
Workers said there are plans to rebuild the office. While hoping that will be completed soon, they said they’re slightly apprehensive about the relocation site near the Roodal cemetery.
They noted its proximity to the highway and security concerns.
San Fernando Corporation officials said when the Paradise office is redone, “It wouldn’t have any snakes in that part of Paradise—not even if it has people named Adam or Eve they want to visit.”
