Rumors of snakes in a casino went viral on Facebook. Thankfully, it is not true.
The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem has denied rumors that there are snakes in their place.
The casino issued a statement earlier slamming the rumors that went viral on Facebook. "There have been no reported incidents of snakes on our property. We do not allow any animals on property with the exception of service animals," it said.
The state police operating inside the Sands Casino Station also denied the rumors.
Trooper William Ortiz told The Express Times that there are zero snakes in the place. "You always hear all kinds of little stuff. It is strange but there is none," he added.
The rumor reportedly started when someone went to a doctor to have a snake bit checked. The doctor allegedly asked the patient if he or she visited the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem lately.
Julia Corwin, a representative of the casino, said that the story must have been modified and passed along. "It seems like there was one post that was going around and then it's been kind of modified in a bunch of different directions," she said.
True or not, a snake in a casino is pretty scary.
