Residents of one Kentucky neighborhood were mystified as to why their mail was not being delivered.

After about a week of no mail delivery in a Lexington community, a concerned citizen called the post office and was told that the mail carrier had been spooked by the number of snakes in the neighborhood, according to LEX18.

The post office told the resident that the mail carrier said he saw 50 snakes in the area. The resident disputed that account, telling LEX18 that she'd only seen one snake while walking her dog.

Mail delivery service in the neighborhood should resume soon, according to the post office.
