thought the assailant swung a pocketknife at him, which

Bah, It’s only a 16 foot Python. No Worries Mate.

A 16 foot scrub python devoured a family dog in front of the
children, ages 5 and 7, who were playing in their yard. The
110 pound snake quickly squeezed the life out of the much
smaller silky terrier-Chihuahua crossbreed before swallowing

yourself “Gee, I would kill for a taco right about now?” Most

Apparently on “Monday the 4th” (Feb 2008), a much less

Massachusetts was accused of slashing a 42-year-old [...]
