But, did she get ticketed?? At least did they ticket the snake?
2005-01-06 12:11:33 AM  
I would agree that this qualifies as strange.
2005-01-06 12:13:58 AM  
I'm thinking this is a set up. No way that snake could have been driving.

This looks like it might be a interesting article to read.

Nursing More Pleasurable Than Cocaine
[image from content.clearchannel.com too old to be available]

United Press International

Animal studies show mothers so greatly enjoy nursing their young they choose nursing over ingesting cocaine, Massachusetts researchers found.

Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School who studied the brains of female rats found the area of the brain activated when mother rats nursed their young pups is the same area activated by cocaine. The activity is so pleasurable that when given a choice, the maternal rats chose nursing over the drug. Rats that had never given birth chose the cocaine instead.

Mother Nature also appears to have built in a protection for the mother-child bond. When lactating rats where given cocaine, the pleasure circuit in the brain that normally would be involved did not activate and appeared to be somewhat repressed.

"These are fascinating findings that verify what any mother who has breastfed knows: that it is a truly rewarding experience," said Tracey Shors of Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J. "It makes sense that a system would evolve to keep a new mother focused on feeding her infants, because it is so critical for survival."

The snake, after being released from the animal shelter, was quoted as saying "Ok, now.. I've been hearing some ugly rumors, and, while I do not wish to make any statements at this time in deference to my owner, may she rest in peace, I... I simply can't let these vicious attacks against me to continue unchecked. I'd just like to state, for the record, that at no point in time was I anywhere near Margaret's crotch area, nor was I ensconced in her velvety.. um.. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. I was gently coiled around her neck--GENTLY coiled--as the police report claimed."

I believe it. Not too strange for S.F.
2005-01-06 12:30:33 AM  
Ok, was the lady drinking or was the six-pack for the snake? Because it's way more interesting if the snake was plastered at the time.

The snake, which survived the crash, was taken to an animal shelter.

Must have been wearing his seatbelt.

Wait until Mothers Against Drunk Snakes hears about this.
2005-01-06 12:55:50 AM  
as the one time owner of a constrictor myself, I have to say that these snakes are far too dumb to intentionally strangle a human.
They might actually get you in a lock if they were holding on for dear life, or you pissed them off or scared them, but in general they're only interested in humans as a very warm thing that they can curl around.

They'll wrestle with a coffee pot for heat, or light bulbs, or anything warm. Got to be careful not to let them hurt themselves.
2005-01-06 12:57:40 AM  
SEE!! it was an emergancy and she was obviously trying to get to the hospital!! this is what happens when you disobey traffic laws and dont take an ambulance in an emergancy....
2005-01-06 12:59:03 AM  
oh... they mentioned alcohol. Maybe the snake attacked her in a "drunken rage"

I call shenanigans! Her boyfriend strangled her and found an awesome way to cover it up - wrap a boa constrictor around her neck, put the body in a car, and stage a wreck. Elementary, my dear Watson.

Your kidding right? She was drunk driving, if your looking for someone to give pity too this is not the person.

No I dont want to hold your hand. Id rather not smell like masterbatory lotion.
