Rats, Snakes, Overgrowth... Location: Property abutting the trail on the South Side between 40th Street South and 39th Street South. Our Group (Veterans Village USA) was considering maintaining this portion of the Pinellas Trail from 37th to 40th Street. We went out to take a closer look and the overgrowth and rotting plants and trees gave off an odor. As we took a closer look, several (4) rats ran near our feet and 2 snakes took off in the opposite direction. (I guess they were looking for the rats). This needs to be cleaned up. I will provide several Photos of the overgrowth of vegetation which houses these critters.
