BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania casino is trying to dispel a bizarre online rumor: The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem says patrons aren't being bitten by snakes.

Casino spokeswoman Julia Corwin tells The Express-Times (http://bit.ly/1hJVmh5) that there have been no reported snake encounters at the Sands. She says if there were snakes, the critters would have been captured by the casino's sophisticated surveillance cameras.

The rumor circulating on Facebook claims someone went to their doctor with some kind of bite, and the doctor diagnosed a snake bite and asked immediately whether the patient had recently visited the Bethlehem casino.

State police operate a station at the casino. Trooper William Ortiz reports "absolutely zero snakes" inside.
