Python Ate Family Dog in Front of Children

BRISBANE, Australia  —  A 16-foot python stalked a family dog for days before swallowing the pet whole in front of horrified children in the Australian tropics, animal experts said Wednesday.

The boy and girl, aged 5 and 7, watched as the scrub python devoured their silky terrier-Chihuahua crossbreed Monday at their home near Kuranda in Queensland state.

Stuart Douglas, owner of the Australian Venom Zoo in Kuranda, said scrub pythons typically eat wild animals such as wallabies, a smaller relative of the kangaroo, but sometimes turn to pets in urban areas.

“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.

“They should have called me then, but (the snake) got away and three or four days later, I was called and went around and removed it” after the dog had been killed, Douglas said.

By the time Douglas arrived, all that could be seen of the dog was its hind legs and tail.

The 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.


“The lady who was there threw some plastic chairs at the snake, but you’ve got to remember that this is about 50 kilograms (110 pounds) of aggressive muscle,” Rose said.

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.

The snake was still digesting the dog at the zoo Wednesday. It will soon be relocated to the bush, Douglas said.

It also could have been “Phython sexually molested a mother in front of her kids and ate her alive”.
Now seriously-
It’s just a dog! Dogs are being hit by cars and abused every day, but when the nature plays a role (snake eats a furry animal) it causes such a mass hysteria!

Comment by J.T.

This is bullshyt. The man eating pic is a fake!

Comment by I hate Idiots that believe this

How do any of you know that the dog wasn’t on his own property when he was attacked!? You all sound like a bunch of IDIOTS! Yes! that pic of the snake eating the man was a FAKE! Don’t you have any common sense or compassion? Has our society become nothing but a bunch of blood thristy idiotic druggies. What was wrong with the SOO that they couldn’t keep the snake in its cage?!! Why did it keep getting out and why was it stalking the dog in it’s HOME! READ THE ARTICALE!!!

Comment by Comfy

WHY was the dog owner not being responsible?? The dog was in his yard! The snake got in his dog bed! The Zoo had to come out and remove the snake before this happened! NOW… Who was not being responsible?

Comment by Comfy

I doubt that it is a dog at all and second-they use a picture and article from Australia to campaign against the keeping of snakes in the U.S.!Could somebody tell me what they have to do with each other??And,I want one documented incident where people masturbated while their snake ate anything….Who writes this stuff???Screen-writers for the X-Files???What they don’t mention that thousands are responsible reptile keepers and many thousands of businesses would have to close if that python ban passes;jobs here in the U.S.!Yes,that’s what we need-more unemployed people!

The dog owner is an idiot – this is a wild snake, not an escaped pet, people. Why did the parents let the children stand by and watch to be traumatized. BAN BAD PARENTING!!!! Also, this is an OLD recycled story!! Also, the man in the snake is FAKE!!

Comment by Melissa Kowalski

1)The Wild snake was probably once someone’s pet. They want to ban the pythons so they don’t escape into the wild and do damage.

2) Look at the date of when it was posted February 27, 2008 yah its an old post but this issue is relevant today!

Comment by lovelifelikeyourself

I think children make an excellent prey item for large pythons. My only trouble is that I own 50+ pythons, and only 3 children…

Comment by DJ

You have a dark sense of humor.

Comment by godscock

I didn’t realize dogs had hooves….

Comment by Sylvias

Maybe its half goat half dog half pig?

Comment by X Factor

1. It’s a wild snake. Wild meaning it was born in the wild. The species is native to australia which is where these events took place. This article has nothing to do with snake keeping practices in the USA or anywhere else in the world.

2. What relevance do the last two pictures have with the article? They are completely unrelated and only give a false impression to readers.

Comment by BS

Here in lies the problem with the WWW. Anyone can post anything that they want WITHOUT QUALIFYING the information being presented, and morons take it as gospel.

As a snake owner AND a dog owner, i take particular offense to this stupid article.

1. Where was this…Australia…guess what “lovelifelikeyourself”, Scrub Pythons are N-A-T-I-V-E to Australia. That being said, not exactly sure how you can possibly ascertain this: “was probably once someone’s pet.”

I live in bear country. do you think for even one second that if a bear goes and unfortunately kills a family’s pet, you would say it “was probably someone’s pet”? Ummmmm….no. You posted this article together for shock value, hence the reason for the second and third pictures which have 0.00% to do with the original article.

2. These Aussies SAW the snake was hanging around and did nothing. Wow, that just speaks volumes. What responsible dog owners they are. So lets recap: they saw the snake, even saw it in the dog’s bed, and did nothing. Obviously they are either used to seeing wild scrub pythons in their yard, were irresponsible dog owners, or are idiots. I say idiots because the admittedly SAW that the snake was sticking around, did NOTHING, and then proceded to allow their CHILDREN out there to play.
These people are the villians here, and in my opinion should be arrested for child endangerment and animal abuse.

The snake did nothing wrong where it should villified like this.

Comment by JT

This just sickens me.

Not the reptiles doing what is natural to them, but you animal rights retards taking any little bit of propaganda, and stretching it so far beyond the truth, that it leaves the public in fear.

Terrorists is what you are, nothing more. Acting under false pretenses in order to gain some twisted sense of accomplishment.

You talk about ridding people of their pets, yet use old animal news stories that were about wild animals. Uh, hello. That’s what WILD reptiles do. They EAT small animals. Don’t want your dog to be the next meal, don’t move into the animals hunting grounds. As for that other picture, you’d have to be a complete moron to think that animal is a dog. It’s not even shaped right.

Get a life, start doing your research instead of regurgitating all this fictitious nonsense that you read somewhere on the internet. Leave us reptile keepers alone. There are many THOUSANDS of us who have been doing this RESPONSIBLY for 30 YRS plus, AND WE DON’T APPRECIATE you people trying to take our pets, using info that is an outright LIE.

I can’t even talk I’m so mad.

Since when do dogs have hooves? It is a goat in that pic not a dog. BTW you don’t hear about it when a dog eats a snake, no one fusses. hypocritical much?

Comment by edkjlkapqownd

The dog is man’s best friend. A snake has a negative conotation starting from the bible.

Comment by Zac

However, the snake is a symbol of medicine and healing which is also from the bible.

We extremely prefer that which you place in this article. Particularly informative as well as reasonable. A particular situation however. I’m operating Safari along with Debian as well as segments of the active style items really are a small wonky. We realise it’s not really a popular setup. Nevertheless it’s a specific thing in order to have in view. We trust it might assist as well as always keep in the main high quality composing.
