    There's really not much for me to say that the articles don't. I just think having a python and a baby in the same house is an accident waiting to happen.

    Yeah, the guy didn't even legally own the snake. I don't know what is going through people's heads sometimes. :confused::confused::confused:

    I watched around 2 minutes of that. :eek:

    Couldn't they just feed the python something else? Surely a goose isn't a part of a python's natural diet anyway.

    I agree! I really dont understand how that doesnt fit under animal cruelty.. Or is that only Cats/Dogs?

    This gives a bad reputation to Snakes when it was the owners fault..

    LOL - you must live here also. It's like the Truman Show, just populated with Jerry Springer show rejects. ;)

    I know almost nothing about this topic but the goose is out of it's misery within five minutes. That's not too cruel if you ask me.

    I agree that its good that the goose didn't suffer, but isn't that like saying I can go and kill my dog quickly and not have any repercussions?

    Five minutes? God that is way too long.
    And everyone's on about the goose. What about the poor bunny in the other video? :(

    If you're going to be eaten I wonder if it wouldn't be better getting chewed up by a large carnivore — lion or tiger? At least with those massive jaws you'll be out of your misery pretty quickly.

    Pythons and other constrictors on the other hand. :eek: You'll have a very long time to consider the full horror as you get sloowly squeezed and then swallowed. Bleeegh.

    Snakes creep me out like nothing else. :eek:

    There are certain animals and certain situations that make things like that legal. The goose was food, not a pet or a wild animal.

    That snake specifically rejects frozen food. I would rather see an animal die relatively quickly versus starving to death!

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing... :confused:

    Oh, I'm taken aback. http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/index.html
    I think that's supposed to be food for humans though... meaning an instant death via knife I guess.

    Why don't you guys stop whining about animal rights and talk about the actual subject of a HUMAN - 2 years old, I might add - being killed.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Just watched the video. Talk about both. ;)

    For such a snake to attack a human of any age at that size is rather odd that type of snake only needs to eat every few weeks so i would consider this a neglect issue by the owner.

    Snakes gotta eat and if the child was dead the snake should have been left to finish its meal, just because the prey is a human, if its a dead human then it is food same as any other animal.

    Keeping a large snake like this requires the owner to take responsibility for it, that requires regular feeding, cleaning, vet treatments for lice and worms and a adequate environment suitable to the size and power of the snake which this species i believe gets large enough to require its own room like a reticulated python.


    Image to illustrate a 22 foot that would still not consider a human a meal, were not very advertising you know.

    And just to show how cute they have :p

    How would you like a sheep to start stomping you when you are in the middle of eating a lamb chop. Please get real, food is food. You would rather the child went in a coffin to rot away to nothing.

    Jen, the child should be laid to rest. It doesn't matter how it died.

    Sorry but be it myself or a child even my own if it's dead there is nothing to save, how would you like to be cut open after you finished a meal to retrieve bits of chicken, or as you placed the fork in your mouth some animal rights activist starts hitting you with a spade.

    If a animal kills you, your dead nothing left your food. No good will in the world will safe you from that fate and sense tells you to let the victor have its prise. Yes it is difficult when it is a child of your own species but in the same light we kill lambs and other young animals for food.

    I think the owner didn't properly care for the animal

    1.) By not feeding it enough

    2.) By stabbing multiple times it afterwards

    I call that animal abuse.

    5 minutes is a long time when you're being eaten alive.

    Don't ask me how I know.

    I recently watched a snake eat a rat in person. It scared the sh*t out of me though I understand it is natural order. It's just creepy.

    To become worm food or to become snake food, where is the difference here, are you saying every time you kill a lamb for your meal it should be laid to rest instead of eaten.
