REUTERS UK 13 March 03 Swede cleared over snake freezing
Stockholm (Reuters): A Swedish man who tried to kill two pet boa constrictors by putting them in a freezer was cleared by a court of animal cruelty charges, Swedish TT news agency has reported.
The 22-year-old man from Ornskoldsvik in northern Sweden, who had bought the snakes from a friend, tried to kill them by putting them in his freezer for 4-5 hours then burying them under some rocks. But a few days later a man walking his dog found them and one was still alive.
A court said on Thursday freezing was a method recommended by some reptile experts, but the man should have found out how long they must be kept in the freezer to die.
