SHREVEPORT, La. -

Snakes are killing pets in Shreveport's Broadmoor neighborhood and understandably that has residents upset.  They tell KTBS 3 News they've made several calls to the city maintenance department, asking that the grass be cut along a drainage ditch near Fern Avenue and Southfield Road.  They believe that's what's behind the recent attacks by water moccasins on their animals.  These concerned citizens are speaking to KTBS 3 to ask for help with this problem. Chester "Catfish " Kelly says, "Yes, we are concerned about our animals but more concerned about the safety of our children."
