Pet Snake Kills Two Small Children In Canada


Two children died after a python got into an apartment in Campbellton, N.B., RCMP say.

“Police are investigating two sudden deaths of two young boys,” Const. Julie Rogers-Marsh said Monday.

It’s believed the snake escaped from a pet store called Reptile Ocean. The victims were boys aged five and seven. They were in the apartment above the store.

“The preliminary investigation has led police to believe that a python snake escaped its enclosure in the store sometime overnight,” the constable said.

Rogers-Marsh said it went through the ventilation. “It’s believed the two boys were strangled by the snake,” she said.

Police have the snake. Initial reports suggested the snake was a boa constrictor.
