Python devours a whole dog, gets trapped in fence a fence, then dies
A massive snake in Nigeria was found dead after a bulge in its body from a recent meal got lodged in between some iron rods.
WARRI, NIGERIA — Karma came swiftly for one voracious python, who got screwed over by his dinner and ended up dying for it.
Naij.com reports that after gorging itself on a whole canine, the six-foot-long reptile tried to slither out of a grassy lot in Warri, Nigeria. But halfway through, its doggie bump got wedged in between two iron rods and just wouldn’t budge.
With no way to squeeze itself out, the snake reportedly remained in the tight spot for several hours, and was dead by the time a local man discovered it.
Shocked at seeing such a huge animal, the man called a few more people to inspect slithers and make sure it had gone to serpent heaven.
The men freed the python and cut its stomach open to reveal the doggie dinner. They then built a fire and promptly burned the snake.
Photos of the snake were uploaded on Facebook back in July, but only recently went viral after being picked up by a number of news outlets.
