SNAKES ALIVE! FAMILY’S TERROR AS HOUSE IS INFESTED BY MICE LEFT BEHIND BY NEIGHBOUR AND HER PET PYTHON

first_imgLetterkenny Town Council is sending a team of exterminators to a house after complaints by a family that their house is infested with mice left behind by a woman who bred the rodents to feed her pet python snake.The woman has since left James Larkin Court in the Oldtown area but hundreds of mice have been left behind.Mum and daughter Sheila and Lisa Wright’s lives have been made hell since their neighbour moved out leaving hundreds of mice breeding out of control in the house next door. But since the woman left with pet snake Lucifer three months ago, the mice have multiplied and have infested several homes on the estate.Horrified Lisa said their troubles only began when their neighbour moved out taking her snake and other animals with her.“We didn’t have any problems before this. It’s only since she moved out that this has happened. She had all sorts of animals including the snake, two turtles, three dogs, hamsters and the mice.“There are at least five houses on the estate now that are crawling with mice,” she said. One of the worst moments for the mum and daughter came a few days ago when mum Sheila went to make herself some toast for breakfast when a mouse popped out of it!“I had only bought the new toaster and I had to throw it out. The sight of the mouse coming out of it and running along the top of the worktop will stay with me for the rest of my life,” she said.Another neighbour revealed how council workers recently removed an old mattress from the garden of the former neighbour and it was literally “crawling with mice.”Now Lisa thinks their problems could be getting worse and they could now even have rats.“I have heard noises and they’re not just mice unless they’re wearing boots. Also the bin in my room was knocked over and a mouse wouldn’t be able to do that,” she said. Lisa and her mum are now out a fortune setting dozens of mousetraps and buying bottles of disinfectant to keep their house clean.They suspect the mice are coming in from a gap behind their sink but despite contacting the local town council, they have heard nothing yet.They are even spending most of their time eating out because they can’t stomach eating at home surrounded by mice.“We just can’t eat at home anymore. The thought of eating in that kitchen is making us sick. It’s costing us a fortune eating out,” added Sheila. EndsSNAKES ALIVE!
