Why would some freaking moron want to have any snake as a pet, much less a Burmese python? I gave you the picture and story about the python eating the alligator and blowing up because of it. Now it seems another Burmese python has decided to pick on someone a little smaller than a gator. Apparently a Burmese python has eaten a Siamese cat in Florida.
This snake was found inside a stolen car by the owner who was looking for his wallet. He found the snake inside, which was looking for a dry place after all the rain, and called 911. There was a bulge in the snake that animal control believes is the missing cat. Animal control experts wrestled with the snake for 10 minutes and claimed the snake wasn’t in any mood to move from his new car.
These snakes are called Burmese pythons, not Florida pythons. Why do we, as a country and government, let idiots bring exotic animals into the country to keep as pets? I have a neighbor with tigers and cougars and probably more on the way. I just know that one day these animals will get out and kill someone or some ones in my community. I believe that if the animal has to be imported or exported to arrive in your backyard then too bad, go to a zoo.
