to have one of these around?
Days after a Comcast worker was bitten by a venomous green mamba snake, experts are still trying to find that snake after it escaped into the neighborhood where the worker was bitten.
The snake may never be located and how the snake got into South Florida may be difficult to determine as well. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the licensed owners who live within a few miles of the attack have their snakes accounted for.
So pythons and boas weren't enough, now there's at least one effing mamba loose. If it turned out to be a gravid female, you've got a problem that makes the big ones look like a slight difficulty.
I know there's been one or two cases of people catching a piranha in Florida, but they were apparently singles that somehow got loose, or some moron turned loose. Speaking of, according to this, somebody caught one in the Po river in Italy. Assuming I understand it; I don't read Italian beyond the level of 'pasta' and 'al Fredo', and when I tried using Babelfish it didn't do squat.
Years back I had to take the dog to a vet, and the one we went to had a big restraint cage in the barn. I asked if it was for horses, and he said "That and lions."
"Lions? As in manes and claws?"
"Yeah. There are some people in Nichols Hills that have them for pets, and they bring them here for shots and checkups."
One more reason for something seriously powerful in the house; your neighbors just might be this damned dumb.
