    Oregon cop battles 12-foot python to save pet store owner

    EUGENE, Ore. - A pet store owner is calling a police sergeant a hero for saving her from the coils of a 12-foot Burmese python doing its best to turn her into a meal.

    Teresa Rossiter had reached into a cage Thursday to show the huge snake to a customer when it bit her right hand and coiled around her left arm to throw her to the floor............

    I wonder if the customer bought the snake.
    ;D

    Seriously though, what would make anyone want to own a snake that can kill you, your kids or even your pets for that matter.

    Anyone on PPO own one of these things?

    I usually fight my 12-foot python at night, sometimes I fight him twice.
    Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

    One of the "not so useless" facts I picked up on one of the nerd channels was this:
    If a constrictor snake (or probably any snake for that matter) is being uncooperative, spraying/splashing alcohol on their face causes them to immediately release without harming the snake.
    Of course, a bullet through the skull accoplishes the same thing... 8)

    We have blacksnakes here in VA (among others) that are harmless but scare the shit out of a man when he is busting brush/running beagles.

    You should see what Ole Chuck (12 ga semi auto Charles Daly) will to to them when you have some buckshot loaded.
    ;D

    I'll remember that next time a snake has a hold of me. Maybe I can run to the cabinet and get my alcohol.

    Not sure if I'd want to waste my expensive Whiskey on a snake...I wonder if a can of Beast would do the trick?
