I tried to retag a question with the tag snakes (plural as suggested here).
But I'm getting the following error:
Oops! Your edit couldn't be submitted because:
Creating the new tag [snakes] is not allowed since the tag [snake]
already exists. If you think this new tag should be allowed, raise it
However, there are no questions tagged as snake. What should I do?

I renamed the tag as snakes; although, it is not currently being used and will be deleted automatically this evening if nothing is tagged as such.

I believe unused tags vanish after a day or two of not being used, so wait until it dies, then retag. Otherwise, I think a mod may be able to switch.
