Not even a rural legend. See field collecting forum (3-12)for my tongue in cheek post. This h.s. is 8 miles from my h.s. I know the teacher and vet involved. Viewing of the feeding was optional. The puppies were strays. The vet crisps 1200-1500 cats & dogs/year. The vet's daughter is in the bio. class, and the vet is also on the local school board. Poor decisions made at a couple of junctures, but shame on the press for not picking up the real story...idiots who don't fix their pets and idiots who dump their unwanteds in the driveways of us country folk. In addition, the Boa involved was left in an abandoned trailer. My wife (a zoo curator) asked me to look at it and make a recommendation (I teach in the town where the Boa was found. I suggested euthanizing it as it was starving and could barely move; I couldn't believe it was still alive; massively dehydrated and basically a living skeleton with loose skin. It was instead given to the h.s. teacher at Bluestem HS, and he's nursed it back to health over the past few years. Press missed this too. Snakes are evil...puppies are innocent. Shame on those evil snakes.
