Seems odd the snake would kill both of them. I could see him getting one and trying to eat him then either succeeding or giving up. There have to be some type of struggle thus alerting the other boy. Snakes don't juts kill for the heck of it they do it for food.

IDK just seems fishy to me. In the comments there is a lot of speculation as well.
To your first question, I don't know the space, acoustics, etc of the apartment so I dan't answer that

To the second I thought he strangled them. Could he have strangled them both at the same time? Depending on how quickly they strangle does the victim have time to make a sound? Was one boy woken up and in such shock he couldn't have screamed? I don't know

What do you think? Do you think the boys instigated it or something?

Re: Awful Snake Story

There will be an autopsy performed where the medical examiner will be able to determine whether in fact the kids were strangled, and based on the pressure points and bruising on the neck he'll be able to tell whether it was human hands or something like a snake doing the strangling.

Long story short evidence will come to light, I wouldn't worry about it.

I am not worried about. Just something to mull seems a little off to me that is all.

Re: Awful Snake Story

ok this shades a lot more light on it.

Python's Strangling of 2 Boys in Canada Probed - ABC News

Looks like he may have fallen of the boys and in a moment of panic "held" on to them to secure himself but not to kill the boys for food.

I hope they don't kill the snake that just be stupid but they probably will.

I hate snakes as well but in reality he was just doing what snakes do. It be far more fitting to chop the head off the person who didn't secure his cage.

When it rains snakes indoors, the apocalypse must be near.

Re: Awful Snake Story

I guess it could have happened pretty quickly if it fell on or just near them both and immediately wrapped them up. Makes more sense now.

Just terrible.

Re: Awful Snake Story

^ exactly


Imagine two kids aged 5 and 7 lying in bed and a 15 foot long snake that weighs over 100lbs on top of them. I'm puttin my chips all in on the snake comin out on top in that scenario about 9 out of 10 times. Over 100lbs of dead weight is hard enough for a grown man to move much less a child. Think of all the pictures you ever see of these snakes when they capture them, not usually one or two people holding them, more like 5-6, atleast.

Just an awful story.
