Most of the cases were in the vast and remote Amazon basin, far from hospitals filled with antidotes. (Photo by CARL DE SOUZA / AFP) (Photo by CARL DE SOUZA / AFP via Getty Images)

A month after Harry Pugliese moved himself, his wife, and 13-year-old stepdaughter to a rental property in Lafayette, Georgia, he told his landlord about a roof leak. Pugliese says John Stafford didn’t do anything about the problem, and last week part of the ceiling collapsed, revealing at least four rat snakes that lived in the ceiling. He says the family have seen rats, cockroaches and bees infesting their home, so he called Animal Control.

That should get things under control when dealing with ceiling snakes, right? In this case no; Animal Control said they needed the landlord’s permission to take the roof off and get the snakes out, and Pugliese said Stafford “didn’t want to do anything about it”. He had previously told Stafford that he would take his rental money and use it instead to fix the roof and not pay rent until the pest situation was resolved.

How would you react to that? Stafford’s answer was to deliver evacuation papers to them yesterday; When asked about the problem with bees in the walls of the apartment building, Stafford said to a reporter, “I would hate to disturb the bees.” With barely a break for the reporter to process, he added, “Bees are dying out and this is a strong beehive.” Stafford then hung up when she asked when the house had last been inspected. Pugliese and his family now live with his brother-in-law.
