Two Young Boys Strangled by Python That Did NOT Escape From Pet Store

The boys, ages 5 and 7, has been sleeping over at a friend's home that is located above Reptile Ocean pet shop in Campellton, New Brunswick, where the African Rock Python escaped from its enclosure.

The python that strangled two young boys this week did not escape from the pet store below the apartment where the boys slept, as previously believed, but was a house pet kept inside the apartment where they were visiting friends, authorities in Canada said.


Quote:
Police in Canada are investigating the “sudden deaths of two young boys” who they believe were strangled by a python that escaped from a local pet store in the town of Campbellton, New Brunswick.

The snake, which has been identified as an African Rock Python, got out of its enclosure at Reptile Ocean pet shop and slithered up a ventilation duct to the apartment above the pet store where the boys — ages 5 and 7 — were sleeping, CBC News reported. The two victims had been spending the night at the home of a friend.

The bodies of the two boys were discovered early the next morning, and police arrived at the scene at approximately 6:30 a.m.


"The preliminary investigation has led police to believe that a python snake escaped its enclosure in the store sometime overnight," Const. Julie Rogers-Marsh said Monday. "It's believed the two boys were strangled by the snake."

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have not yet released the identities of the two boys, The Ottawa Citizen reported. An autopsy will be performed on Tuesday.

“My body is in shock. I don’t know what to think,” pet store owner Jean-Claude Savoie told Global News.


Savoie said the two victims are the the kids of his best friend, and that he discovered their bodies when he walked into the living room following the sleepover.

“I thought they were sleeping until I [saw] the hole in the ceiling. I turned the lights on and I [saw] this horrific scene,” he said.

"This is a tragedy," Cambleton’s Deputy Mayor Ian Comeau told reporters. "The city is in shock."

New Brunswick loosened its restrictions on exotic pets in 2009, allowing a greater variety of snakes to be sold at pet shops, CBC News reported.

Re: Two Young Boys Strangled by Python That Escaped from Pet Store in Canada

IMHO I would have thought that the use of the word "strangled" doesn't seem like one I would use to describe the crushing injuries such a snake would inflict on children this age. I hope the police don't just take this at face value. Strangled to me implies a human act (around the neck) rather than the crushing constricting a snake would do. I am probably wrong but just because a snake has escaped from a reptile shop (an establishment that should have high security viv locks etc) I don't think they should jump to conclusions about the manner of death of these 2 poor kiddies.

"The two victims had been spending the night at the home of a friend. "

Omg. Makes me glad I'm not a parent. I don't think I could let them out of my sight without freaking out the whole time. It's like the two overnight guests in the Villisca axe murder house. Well, not exactly the same.

A small store like that probably does not make that large of a profit, not sure if insurance would cover it. Sad story. Where did they find the snake?
