“UPDATE: Shocking pictures show Canadian boys cleaning reptile cage before python strangled them in their sleep
Noah Barthe, 4, and his 6-year-old brother, Connor Barthe, were killed in their sleep by the African rock python after it escaped from an enclosure inside their friend's apartment. The killer serpent was euthanized Tuesday.”

I am not sure what the publishers intent of this headline was,
but what I actually found *shocking* about this article was
that any adult with half a brain would actually photograph any children so
scantily clad, in this day and age, and not expect some to see it as a HUGE red flag. Lets see, first the snake escapes from faulty cage a SECOND time, AFTER the owner FAILED to repair it, and this time with small children present, then the owner changes his story from the “snake escaped from the downstairs cage” to “snake actually was kept in a different cage in the upstairs apartment all along”. Now we see that no attending adults had the brains to not allow small children to play naked in a dirty reptile cage and expose themselves to whatever microorganisms the snake may have had. And now we find out about photos that would be provocative to pedophiles. It seems like the children were failed at least three times by all of the responsible adults in their lives.
And because of this, responsible reptile owners are having collections confiscated and euthanized, and cities everywhere are passing restrictive exotics laws fueled by media-manufactured hysteria of escaped snakes “terrorizing” the world. The witch hunt has begun.
When people kill people with guns, or other weapons, drunk driving, dogs, etc, we don't pass laws making it illegal for responsible people who haven’t done anything wrong, to own guns, weapons, cars, alco
