What do I do if I see a snake?

There are many different types of snakes that are native to the Fayetteville area and very few are venomous. Animal Control will respond 24-7 if you have a snake inside your residence. Just call Fayetteville Police Dispatch at 479-587-3555. Snakes seen outside should be left alone and will eventually go away. Here is some helpful information on snakes and other reptiles from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
