Experts warn about the migration of vipers in the Moscow region.
Watch out for vipers!
Committee forestry of the Moscow region warns residents and tourists about the beginning of the autumn migration of vipers and informs about several cases of human bites by these snakes.
The bites are associated with careless handling of snakes and the approaching period of their migration. During this season, snakes crawl from the fields into the forests and look for wintering grounds such as rodent burrows, old stumps and fallen trees.
Scientists indicate that snakes are very sensitive to vibrations. Therefore, when picking mushrooms or walking in the forest, it is recommended to create noise. In addition, you must use tight and high shoes.
