is this a lie or were you completely oblivios to the habits and tendencys to this giant animal that you were responsible for.
1. if you owned this snake youd know it constricts its prey and kills it b4 eating it so ther was no reason to even atempt getting the monkeys
2. youd know that most the time even the tamest of animals will bit you if you even atempt to touch them let alone if you try to take what they are eating away
3.in outher words it was your fault that you got bit then you killed the snake for you (stupid) mistake
4.if you had been prepaired for a bite whitch no matter how tame the snake is you should be prepaired for a bit you would have had a container of vinigar,mouth wash, or any type of strong alcohol near by and handy (putting even a little dab of any of thes in the snakes mouth will cause it to let go.
5.then you go to the hospital to get the wounds that should have never happend taken care of and gues what when you tell them what happend word get around and that is exactly how most laws restricting herplovers rights to own the pets the love get made you tell your story then outher people tell it to outher people (all the time the story is getting distorted) buy the time its done its turned from a story of human error and misjudgement into a rumor about killer snakes trying to eat humans.......in the end allot of times the loss you took is nothing compaired to the loss of the outher herp owneres in your comunity who despite proper and smart handleing of there animals might loose them because of a rash law put out by people fearing for theyre lives.
