    Exclamation Python Stalks and Eats Pet Dog

    SYDNEY (Reuters Life!) - A five-meter python stalked an Australian family's dog for days before swallowing the pet whole in front of horrified children, local media said on Wednesday.

    The python devoured the silky terrier-chihuahua on Monday night in Cairns in northern Queensland as two children aged five and seven watched in horror, said the Cairns Post newspaper.

    "Actually watching it unfold before your eyes was pretty gut-wrenching," father Daniel Peric told the newspaper. "We'd had the dog about five years, so it was part of the family."

    The body of the family's cat had been found a few weeks earlier looking as if something had tried to swallow it and on Sunday a smaller python ate the family's pet guinea pig.

    Stuart Douglas, owner of the Australian Venom Zoo at nearby Kuranda, said scrub pythons usually ate wallabies (small kangaroos) but turned on pets in urban areas.

    "It actively stalked the dog for a number of days. The family that owned the dog had actually seen it in the dog's bed, which was a sign it was out to get it," Douglas told local media.

    Douglas said when he arrived after the attack, all he could see was the dog's back legs and tail sticking from the snake's mouth. "It only took about 30 minutes to eat the dog, but it will be digesting it for two days," he said.

    They should just keep the snakes as pets, pythons are cooler than dogs anyways

    If this happened to two previous family pets, and they saw the snake in their dog's bed, the parents are to blame for being idiots and letting their pets outside unattended.

    Wtf how many pythons are there in Sydney?? Perhaps they need to hire new Zoo attendants. And why exactly they didn't kill it or report the fact they had a python in their backyard is beyond comprehension. Shame it didn't eat the owners instead.

    Chihuahuas are annoying anyway. Unnatural breed, shouldn't even exist. I thought the news story was fairly tongue-in-cheek. "It only took about 30 minutes to eat the dog, but it will be digesting it for two days". Haha.

    This family lives in northern Queensland so they probably have these snakes living in the vicinity. But why would you just sit back and observe it stalking your dog for five days? That size snake could eat a child. Don't they relocate or just shoot snakes like this one in Queensland?

    I hate Snakes. I can't stand the sight of them. I don't understand the whole 'pet' fascination with Snakes either.

    If that was my Dog it ate, I would've cut the little belly dragger in half.

    I like snakes and I'd keep one if I had the means to. Nice animals, preferable to a dog. I've handled them before in ZA, but of course not full grown ones. They're pretty friendly when they're not trying to kill you. Still not as nice as felines though.
