A postal carrier in San Jose recently happened upon a rattlesnake along his route, and now residents in the Almaden Valley neighborhood aren’t getting their mail delivered.
Residents along two streets in the neighborhood admit they have seen rattlesnakes in the past. But since a mail carrier saw one, delivery has been stopped.
Dave Long has lived here in the area for decades, and it’s the first time he’s not getting the mail delivered to his house. He and his neighbors along Montego Court and Montego Drive received a letter from their postal carrier, saying that because of rattlesnakes in the area, they will no longer get mail.
