Many creatures can be dangerous, it is amazing that 'idiots' are allowed to just wander in a pet shop and buy one.

Although I have sympathy for the parents for the loss of their child, this is no different to them leaving the gas on, or leaving out a dangerous weapon for the child to play with, that child depends on it's parents to protect them from danger and they failed miserably.

On the flip side, these people neglected this animal and if not for the killing of their child, this snake would have continued to suffer at their hands, they are basically irresponsible pieces of rubbish who shouldn't have a child or a snake, in fact, I wouldn't trust them to look after my newspaper!

Although it is not clear what has happened to the snake, I am glad that the TRUE culprits are on trial and not a creature who is just doing what nature has taught him.

Noted with thanks Joan.
