It seems to me that each patron of the "circus" who paid to see such things ought to be indicted as an accessory to this and similar public displays of barbarity. I can't imagine (nor do I want to) what manner of degenerate would want to see, let alone pay to see, such a display.

And I hope the snakes were defanged.
How can a species sink to such depravity?
