Who can forget this awful case from 2013.

I didn't know until today though that the owner has been charged in relation to the incident.

Oh goodness Freedom I do remember this happening. Not heard anything since though. I'll see if I can find anything from when it happened. It seemed an almost unbelievable happening at the time, the snake going from one floor to another. Poor boys.

Bit here from the past:

Python that killed boys was house pet
Police reveal snake that strangled two Canadian brothers was kept in apartment, not pet store below
