17-Foot Python Menaces Family Picnic

Subscribe to TheFW on

This enormous Burmese python was killed by Florida park rangers this week after it crashed a family’s holiday outing.

The snake was still in its death throes as this video was taken. You can hear one of the rangers comment that for a snake of this length, it’s surprisingly skinny. Oh really? Because to us it looks like a demon monster capable of strangling cattle for its dinner.

According to CNN, python incidents are not uncommon in Florida, thanks to people abandoning their pets into the wilderness, where they go on to thrive in the warm climate.
