In a heartbreaking incident in Florida, a 60-pound Siberian husky named Duke was strangled by an African rock python weighing 38 pounds. The unfortunate event took place on August 30 in the family’s backyard as the serpent twisted around Duke’s neck, taking his last breaths. Despite prompt emergency services, Duke could not survive and succumbed to his injuries within five minutes.
The exact time of the venomous snake’s arrival in the Miami area near Tamiami Trail and Krome Avenue, where snakes are known to reproduce, is unclear. The homeowner revealed that her son tried to rescue Duke by using garden scissors. However, the snake was too strong, and the rescue operation failed. These kinds of occurrences are not typical in the locality, and the homeowner advised that everyone should be careful, particularly when around young children.
It is unclear when the python made its way into the backyard of a family residing in the southeastern region of Tamiami Trail and Krome Avenue in Miami. This particular area has been known for a high population of snakes reproducing.
Reportedly, CBS Miami has shared a disturbing incident that recently took place at the home of a suspected murderer. Apparently, a pet python had attacked a dog, leaving its owner no choice but to intervene. This person, who remains anonymous, attempted to save their beloved pet by using scissors to fight off the snake.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the red substance on the ground was not human blood, but actually came from the python. The alleged perpetrator, Jose R. Rojas, was indicted for his alleged involvement in the ruthless abuse and murder of his boss and colleague a year prior.
