ATLANTA (AP) - A fake Facebook post is spreading fears that venomous snakes are lurking in the sewers of a Georgia town, and the city attorney has expressed concerns to the social media network that it's creating confusion and panic.

Calhoun Mayor James Palmer says residents have asked him whether it's safe to walk the streets.

Facebook Inc. has been under scrutiny amid complaints about fake news, fake accounts and concerns about political groups using account holders' information to manipulate elections.

The snake alert is on a Facebook account using the City of Calhoun's name. It says a local officer killed a copperhead as it slithered from a sewer and warns of more snakes in the underground system.

The post - which includes pictures of an enormous snake - has been shared more than 150,000 times since it appeared Monday.

A few weeks ago, the site announced that an alligator had been spotted at a local boat ramp, and advised caution, the mayor said. The site followed up a few days later with a "Live Gator Cam."

Tammy, Bob, ... the only good snake is a DEAD snake!!  Kudos to you, Tammy, for the courage to kill the Coral snakes.  Around the farm I used to live on, I killed and identified 7 kinds of snakes but only one was dangerous - the water moccasin!  I shiver at the sight of them - they remind me of satan!

Just think, a 3 foot Coral Snake is more deadly than that snake, and I've killed a few of them.

Luckily they're just not as aggressive, right Chrissy?

This old guy was found inside a open water tank near an abandoned chicken house.
