SCHERTZ, Texas - A Schertz woman is dealing with a jungle right in her own backyard.
The field near Rae Flinty’s trailer park community hasn't been mowed for weeks and has evolved from being a nuisance to a real danger.
“There are fleas, ticks, and wild animals that come through here,” Flinty said. “I don’t want anything to happen to my kids or my animals.”
A neighbor’s cat suddenly died after getting bit by a snake in the field. A snake also attacked Flinty’s cat Shadow.
“The fang marks as bigger than my thumb so it’s a pretty large snake,” Flinty said.Some of the weeds in the field measure as tall as 6 and a half feet.
Flinty said she was advised to call Schertz Public Works about the field, but didn’t have any luck getting in touch with someone.
“I’ve been trying to get a hold of them for two weeks,” she said. “The grass is getting higher and it’s drying out. Once it fully dries it’s going to be a fire hazard and my house will be one of the first to go.”
Fox News San Antonio called Schertz Public Works to find out why the field hasn’t been mowed.
According to a city spokesperson, the field is actually owned by two different groups.
One portion belongs to the city, but the other belongs to the trailer park community developer.
After our calls, the city inspected the field and discovered the property was in violation of city code.
The spokesperson said inspectors have spoken to the property management and the field will be mowed next week.
As for the city’s section, the spokesperson said they have already started mowing it and will finish the remaining portion in a couple of weeks.
Netflix show, Fuller House, may already be in the works, but there is still a
chance the Olsen Twins will join the cast. Plus another spin off is in the
works, Channing Tatum is no longer Gambit, and Chris Pine has signed onto yet
another super hero film.
