Snake Kills Toddler

Python_Strangling__t450— A nine-foot long Burmese python recently killed a two-year-old child in Oxford, Florida when the reptile escaped from its terrarium.  The snake when found had constricted around the child, and was stabbed until it relinquished its grip, although unfortunately it was by then too late for the toddler.  The python had bitten and then squeezed to death the little girl.  The owner of the snake may face criminal charges…

…unanswered is the question of why would anyone allow a predator in the same house as a young child…

    Sheesh! Every idiot with an exotic pet thinks they’re Steve Irwin! Maybe this tragedy will finally provide a permanent wake-up call to the contrary.

    That being said: my deepest condolences to the parents on their loss.

      A great tragedy…as the earlier mauling by Travis the Chimp also demonstrated, exotic animals are not good choices as pets.
