Kill a bunch of pythons and you're a hero.
Kill a bunch of people with a gun, and suddenly you're a bad guy.

FTA: "The snake, not in any way, shape or form, had intended to eat the baby - it was trying to have a group hug," [Tex Tillis, from Tex's Snake Removals] told The Daily Telegraph.

"Pythons, underneath their bottom jaw they have a row of sensors which enable them to see the world in terms of infrared pictures. So in the dark they're going to see a baby as this warm spot."

Well, okay, it was wrapped lightly around her arm and not tightly around her torso, but they can eat lots of things including kangaroos. See 11 Things Pythons Can Eat (link to graphic photos).

The snake they're talking about is probably Morelia spilota mcdowelli (link).

They don't always eat what's good for them: they'll try to eat poisonous cane toads, which kills them. So I'm not sure it wouldn't eventually have tried to eat the 2 year old girl, which wouldn't be much fun for her whether it succeeded or not. And since they're apparently not anywhere near endangered I'd have eaten the damn snake instead of freeing it. (They tell me snake tastes just like children.)
