Did she commit 'suicide by snake'? Woman killed by African black mamba she kept in New York home along with 75 others


www.dailyma il.co.uk

A woman is feared to have committed 'suicide by snake'.
Aleta Stacey is thought to have deliberately allowed herself to be bitten by a deadly black Mamba snake.
The 56-year-old was found dead at the New York home she shares with 75 other snakes, most of them poisonous.
But friends and family believe Stacey could have deliberately allowed herself to be bitten.
They said she was an experienced snake handler who knew the dangers of getting to close to the fast and venomous snake.

This is one of the most bizzare stories I've come across. I can empathize with someone who is so emotionally distrought that they want to take their life (although I don't agree with it), but doing so in such a painful manner, much like the man who recently set himself on fire, baffles me.

Some animals are just wild and cannot be domesticated, as demonstrated by this incident, and therefor I don't believe should be allowed to be kept as pets.

it may seem like she commited suicide the evidence does point to that with her not making the call.

but with the stories her friends are saying like she was unhappy but she loved her snakes ... and had a boyfriend aswell..

knowing this I think she cared greatly for her animals and would not leave them in this position they were very lucky to go to the zoo.
I think she would have at least made preparations for her animals before intentionally being bitten,
also leaving the cage open for the snake to get out and bite anyone else...
that doesn't seem rational for a woman who cared for 75 snakes. but suicide is not rational...

If she experienced paralysis, she wouldn't have been able to make a phone call. It seems an awfully gruesome choice of a way to die.
