terrible tragedy for the family
It then fell through the ceiling and dropped onto the small boys from above. He said he believes the snake coiled around both children and crushed them as they slept together on the floor.
Reptile experts are baffled by a python attack in an apartment in New Brunswick that left two young boys dead, with autopsies scheduled for today that hope to shed light into the incident that has led to cautions about exotic pets.
Noah Barthe, 5, and Connor Barthe, 7, were killed by the large African rock python while visiting an apartment upstairs from Reptile Ocean in Campbellton on Monday morning, RCMP say.
Steven Benteau, a spokesman for the Department of Natural Resources, told CBC News on Tuesday that African rock pythons are not permitted under the province's Exotic Wildlife Regulation.
A criminal investigation has been launched.

No way did the snake kill the 2 boys. He was hosting a sleepover. I think that man is part of some cult and did this with or without the PTB.....
I have 5 boys and they freak and wake up and start to fight. That snake would never have got away with such a thing.edit on 6-8-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
