What do you think about owning dangerous snakes?
What do you think about owning Pythons after the death of the 5 and 7 year old Canadian boys who were killed in their home by a snake that escaped a neighboring pet store and now two missing Boa's in Missouri? Do you think it should be a part of public safety policy now?
We all do dangerous things everyday, and many of them are frivolous. Responsible people should be able to keep their snakes. Did you know that there are no more than 2 deaths a year from captive pythons, and in nearly every case it involved people who owned the snake, or willingly interacted with it? This is not a 'public safety' threat. People fear 'unusual' deaths such as this even though typical practices put their lives at a far greater risk daily.
Melissa is absolutely correct. As I kindly pointed out in my own article covering the former news story ( http://christopherjrex.hubpages.com/hub … adian-Boys ), dogs kill ~three times more people every year than snakes do (in the United States). Are people up-in-arms to ban them? Not so much.
