Unhappy Oh god, absolutely awful (graphic)

I was just directed to this thread today. I warn you, it's really, really graphic and extremely disturbing (not only the event itself and the images, but also the response to it). Reason number #874 to make sure your snakes are SECURELY kept in enclosures...

Ugh

I agree, that sux. But what I noticed first was how knowledgable and informed all the people were on that other forum!! I mean holy shee-at! Some of those dudes knew more about snakes than 90% of the people here! I was blown away.

Ick! Yeah i wish i hadn't looked either! It must be that curiousity from hearing that "you may not want to look, it's disturbing" ::runs home to check enclosures, and looks in car to be sure!::

That is so sad. I really shouldn't have looked.

I Can't belive i didn't hear about that sooner. Since i live not to far from where it happend maybe 10 mins. at the most. He was probly only driving 10 or 15 min. Before it happend Ballwin is right near 44 Just depends where he was heading and where he stopped.

I think these pics are staged. Looks like two snakes to me, made to look like one large mangled snake. I got all these Monday in one of those email forwards. If I had to guess I would say this is two large balls that died in transport, and the importer decided to have a little fun.
