Default Snake eats family dog as kids watch

Snake eats family dog as kids watch

Removing the half-swallowed dog could have harmed or even killed the python, Rose said, because dogs have sharp teeth and claws that could do the snake internal damage if it were wrenched out.

And?

I agreed with you completely... until I read this

Quote:
he zoo manager, Todd Rose, said pythons squeeze their prey to death before swallowing it whole. The 5-year-old dog would have been suffocated within minutes.
So pulling out the dog would have been useless.

But the dog was still alive... yeah... Pick the dog over the snake... eVERY TIME.

And? It's a snake.....kill it. Simple country logic doesn't seem to work too well anymore.

And here's the "knee jerker"

"It actively stalked the dog for a number of days," Douglas said.

"The family that owned the dog had actually seen it in the dog's bed, which was a sign it was out to get it," he added.

Could have easily been prevented.

Again.....where's the common sense? I understand they're in Australia. But if I saw a snake in the yard where my 5 and 7 year olds played, that snake would be dead. It could by my hands or the government's hands, but it would be dead.

this is just irresponsibility

who sees a python in their house a does nothing about it? I like snakes, but if I had kids or even a dog and saw this near my house I would just kill it. and I wouldn't think twice about it

poor dog has to suffer the consequences

The only good snake is a dead snake.
