Since we live in America, someone made sure this wasn't a case where a snake managed to squeeze a trigger on a loaded firearm and hit the guy, right?

It's a new article covering something that happened last year and has already gone to trial.  Um, well ok, content is content I guess.

Don't tread on me.  I might shoot you.

Bootleg: Since we live in America, someone made sure this wasn't a case where a snake managed to squeeze a trigger on a loaded firearm and hit the guy, right?


Back in the 80s, a little story got picked up and run in papers all over the country.  It involved a farmer who had been cleaning his gun, but carelessly didn't check to be sure it was unloaded.  Sometime in the process, his cat started playing with the gun.  Bang!  Farmer shot in the head, dead instantly.

Several relevant points.  The location where this story took place either got cut off or was never featured.  My family had cats.  Oh, and my father was a farmer with the exact same name as the guy in the story.

The story didn't get run in all the newspapers at the same time.  I suppose it was something of a 'filler' piece to eat up a couple of column inches whenever an editor needed something in a hurry.  So, for months we were besieged by sympathy cards and calls from acquaintances around the country as they learned of our supposed tragedy.

Anyway, the point I'm driving at is that America is so gun-crazed that even the animals are packing.  Everybody run!

Pin a murder on an innocent snake?

That's pretty spineless.

If it was a Cobra, it would have used red lasers.

That's if it was the Cobra. If it was a Cobra, then we're talking about this guy:

A bite from a python or even anaconda would suck, but not be lethal.  A Colt King Cobra would be though.

A Python I should not advise, -
It needs a doctor for its eyes,
And has the measles yearly.
However, if you feel inclined
To get one (to improve your mind,
And not from fashion merely),
Allow no music near its cage;
And when it flies into a rage
Chastise it, most severely.
I had an Aunt in Yucatan
Who bought a Python from a man
And kept it for a pet.
She died, because she never knew
These simple little rules and few; -
The snake is living yet.

Belloc. Of course

If an anaconda gets ahold of you, you probably don't have much time left.
