Constrictor Suffocates Child
In what can only be called a bizarre and tragic accident, "a 12-foot pet albino Burmese python escaped its cage early this morning and slithered into the room of a 2-year-old child in Sumter County where the reptile wrapped around the toddler and suffocated her." TBO Yolanda Fernandez
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considers the python a "reptile of concern" because of its impact on the environment when it is set free or escapes. You can read more about the threat of Burmese Pythons at the FWC's Florida's Nonnative Wildlife Species Detail page.
