To all of my FruddyBuddies, Wolf Pack Members, and Fellow Defenders Or because the Beastie Boys said it, "You've Gotta Fight, For Your Right, To Deeee-FEND". When you read the webpage I include you have to bear in mind that this is one of the reasons I rant. I AM this Snake's Defence Counsel, I have 'baby sat' friends' snakes, I believe this snake is being framed, and some vile human is responsible for this crime. Snakes are NOT 'serial killers', THEY DO NOT 'go postal', they only kill other life to feed. http://www.treehugger.com/natural-sciences/large-python-escapes-pet-store-kills-two-kids-age-5-and-7.html I first heard this on the BBC World Service radio station; and my Kiki forgive them for the amount of their broadcasts that have made me start awake in the early hours with a "WTF!", and thereby disturbing HER sleep.
There IS something not right about this story. These Snakes kill to eat only.
The facts change every day as I listen to the news here. Originally the snake was in the pet store under the apartment, now it appears the snake was kept in the apartment. The boys had been at a petting zoo before they went to bed and snake experts think that the smell of the animals on them was enough for the snake to think they were food. We will have to wait for the results of the autopsy to find out the truth. The snake has been euthanized.
