Pythons and any other types of snakes are equally deadly especially when it comes in contact with prey. In a world where only the strong survive, snakes too have to try hard to stay alive – even if that means harming humans!
In Oxford, Indiana, a 36-year-old woman was found lifeless inside her home with a python whose almost 8-feet long twirled on her neck. (Definitely not a pleasant sight to see especially for people who have a fear of snakes)
According to Washington Post, the lifeless body of a woman named Laura Hurst was found by Benton County Sherriff Don Munson inside one of the homes she owns which houses 140 more living snakes!
The house she went to is being rented by Munson. As it turns out, Munson is a snake breeder and his love for the reptiles led to his collection growing in number in the past years.
Munson recalled that he was even able to remove the snake from Hurst’s neck but it was all too late to save her.
On the other hand, Sgt. Kim Riley, Indiana State Police spokesman said, “She appears to have been strangled by the snake.”
It was unfortunate that Laura had to suffer through such an untimely demise but authorities are now trying to investigate the case to find out what really happened to her. As for Munson, may this unfortunate event be a lesson to him to house his pets in a much secure place so that they can no longer victimize other individuals in the neighborhood?
