For years the land was protected by the wildlife commission due to the snakes, but someone must of gotten paid off after Mr. Ernie Shiffendecker died, as what is now called the Sanctuary was mostly his land. That is why I always found it amusing when all the Yuppies moved into their McMansions back there as I knew it was inevitable the rattlesnakes would show up again and they would freak. What did they think that nature would just go away because they built some houses?
The snake issue is not a secret to anyone living in the Sanctuary. I do not think that the realtors developing there should indicate that there are no snakes; that's simply not true.
My advice would be to talk to the people who have been there when the first homes were erected on the newer development (John James Audubon side).
