As temperatures rose in the Coachella Valley, the Indio Police Department asked the public to be wary of snakes.
The department shared photos online of officers coaxing out a baby bull snake. Officers named it Herbert and said it was safely relocated.
Some tips for snake safety:
-Be mindful of where you walk/hike as snakes are expected to be in open areas.
-Wear boots while out hiking.
-Stay on well-used trails.
-Keep your dogs on leashes.
