    The snake was still digesting the dog at the zoo Wednesday.

    When you have a dog that looks like a rodent, you're just asking for it.

    a family's pet becomes a member of the family. If a dog were to eat the baby it would get shot. The snake ate the family pet the snake should die.

    Boo hoo, poor snake. I would have beat that thing to death with a baseball bat.

    Why? Because it did what was natural and the dog was too weak to survive? The dog is dead, the snake won. End of story.

    I would've tried my damn best to save the dog and certainly wouldn't have let the kids stand and watch... it says it took 30 mins for the snake to fully consume the dog, why did the owners not try to help when the attack first started? Even if the dog was a sure goner I would still do what I could to prevent it

    Grab a shovel and cut the thing in half, save the dog

    I agree. If it's attacking, step in and save the dog. If it's already eaten it there is no reason to kill it. It's not the snake's fault that it is acting on instinct. It's the dog owner's faults for finding the snake in the dog's bed and not taking care of the situation then.

    I see. You're one of those people that put animals/humans at the same level as of humans. Sorry, not the same thing.

    How does a snake stalk a dog for days, dogs are pretty random. Also how could no one notice a 16 foot long, 110 pound snake hanging around the house for a few days, I be calling animal control as soon as I saw the thing, well admittedly I'd probably first piss my pants 'cause I'm afraid of snakes, but would definitely call someone before changing said pants.

    The dog should come back and haunt the stupid owners.

    They saw the snake in the dog's bed and didn't call the authorities to come remove it? Dumbest...owners...ever. If the snake hadn't have gotten him then something else surely would have with dog owners that idiotic.
