As someone who owned snakes for years I have to say that
A) there is no way that a 5 foot snake (which probably weighs about 4-6 lbs) is going to eat a 2 year old kid who probably weighs at least 18-25 lbs - not gonna happen, and
B) why not let the snake go back in the wild? Just safeguard your home better - lesson learned.

Actor_au: Pic of a snake from my backyard.

I made it into the background image of my Twitter account to scare the crap out of non-Australians. That thing was about two meters long.
We locked the dogs inside, took a bunch of photos and then my mum panicked and called up a snake guy to come and get it, trap it and release it a long way away.
Fun afternoon.

She called a snake guy? To come get it and move it politely? You call that panicking?!?

I'd have grabbed something like a weapon and had at the the thing. A hoe. Hedge clippers. "Ah, so HERE's my Walmart machete!" And not from panic, just protecting my own.

Panic would have me peeing myself while making funny faces. I might even run or faint. In short, your mum is more of a man than I am: is she cute too?

Anyway. It's not like such snakes are an endangered species. Kill it! Kill it NOW!

The snake was protecting the baby from dingoes.

Yeah, we should kill the python because how dare it be a wild animal. In fact, we should kill all animals, they might do similar things.
