Shropshire: Is no letter safe?

On Tuesday it was a goat. Now it is snails.

The Shropshire Star has the details:

Hungry snails have been munching on people's letters after finding their way into the village post box at Wrentnall, between Pontesbury and Ratlinghope.

Villagers say they can only post their letters immediately before a collection, so the creatures do not have time to chew their important correspondence to shreds.

I do not think I have ever been to Wrentnall, but there is a nice picture of its former Baptist and Primitive Methodist chapel here - with not a snail in sight.
