"Snake eats family dog as kids watch"
You're g-damn right it did. I guess if you live in the tropical tropics and you have a small ratlike dog and huge snakes around it's only a matter of time.
I'm not sure why it rules so much but it does. Don't even fight it. I esp. liked that they didn't kill the snake. It was just hanging out, doing what snakes do (eat small, ratlike creatures). No need to kill it. Although a woman threw some plastic chairs at it, to no effect.
Here's part of the report from CNN:
The boy and girl, aged 5 and 7, watched as the scrub python devoured their silky terrier-Chihuahua crossbreed Monday at their home near Kuranda in Queensland state.
The snake was still digesting the dog at the zoo Wednesday. It will soon be moved to the bush, Douglas said.
