In Florida, a tragic occurrence took place involving a 38-pound African rock python that strangled a 60-pound Siberian husky named Duke in the family’s backyard on August 30. Sadly, Duke perished within five minutes as the snake suffocated him by coiling around his neck. There is no clear indication of when the dangerous serpent entered the region southeast of Tamiami Trail and Krome Avenue in Miami where snakes had been breeding. The homeowner reported that her son tried to rescue Duke with gardening scissors but was unable to do so due to the snake’s immense strength. Although these types of incidents are not common in the area, the homeowner advised everyone to exercise caution, particularly when young children are present.
A surprise sighting: It is unclear when the python made its way into the backyard of a family living in the southern area of Tamiami Trail and Krome Avenue in Miami, a location known for its high population of snakes.
According to a report by CBS Miami, an alarming situation took place at the residence of a person accused of murder, involving their pet python and a dog. The identity of the dog’s owner remains confidential, but they tried to save their furry friend from the snake’s grasp by using scissors to stab it. To their surprise, it turned out that the blood on the floor was actually from the python. The aforementioned accused, Jose R. Rojas, had been charged with the vicious torture and killing of a co-worker and boss in the preceding year.
