Sounds very odd, why would a snake kill something it's not going to eat... and two of them at that.

 

Possible shenanigans here

While it's sad either way, I agree with Art3x. Why would the snake kill two boys and not try to eat them. Something doesn't smell right with this situation.

Large pythons and boas have been known to kill kids before and not consume them because they were too large for theit mouth so no, it's not unheard of.

Major wrongful death suit.

The two young boys killed by a python earlier this week were asphyxiated by the giant reptile, according to preliminary autopsy results released today.

 

Further tests are being done on the boys, but Royal Mounted Police Sgt. Alain Tremblay said, "We recognize that this has touched the hearts of people across the world and that people want to know how this could have happened."

 

"Our investigators are looking at all aspects of this tragic incident, and that will take some time," said Tremblay.

 

The autopsy results follow the disclosure by Canadian authorities that the python did not escape from the pet store below the apartment where the boys slept, as previously believed, but was a house pet kept inside the apartment where Noah Barthe, 4, and Connor Barthe, 6, were visiting friends.

Sounds odd.  Snakes don't kill for pleasure as it puts them at risk, physically.  When they kill they eat, and they generally only kill and eat one thing at a time.

I suppose so...  but two kids?  And is there evidence that they TRIED to swallow the kids?

 

[edit]

 

Either way, it stinks for the families involved.  :(

Couldn't criminal charges be brought against the snake's owner?

There was a news story yesterday about the snake trafficking, covering the issue of pythons & anacondas in Flirida all the way to companies that sell & ship by air critters including cobras and green mambas. The reporters ordered a cobra for $255.

Yeah, Snakes on a Plane. Where's Samuel L when you need him?
