Siphon the Python

A 4.2-metre pet python crushed its owner to death, authorities said after finding the snake loose in a southern Indiana shed with the man's body.

Patrick Von Allmen, 23, was found last night in the shed near Lanesville, about 25 kilometres west of Louisville, Kentucky.

A medical examiner determined that the death was consistent with asphyxiation caused by compression of the neck and chest, said Conservation Officer Mark Farmer.

"When you're dealing with a wild animal species, you take on a certain amount of risk," he said.
Von Allmen had told family members he was going to treat the snake for a medical condition, Farmer said.

He was alone in the shed with the python for about three hours before his body was found.

Next time i go to the toilet i am gunna be much more careful........


  • What do you give a sick snake?

  • What a dipstick really........snakes aren't meant to be kept as pets for crying out loud! Half of Dubai is up in arms at the moment cos someones 'pet' python has done a runner (slither?)in one of the fashionable suburbs. It's laughable honestly, but I do feel sorry for the poor bloody snake.

  • my friend used to have a pet python. He warned us not to pet his dog or ferret, then hold the snake because it would think we were edible and start squeezing the life out of us. Not a pet I would choose!

  • Yikes. Why would anyone want to keep a 3 m snake as a pet?

    By Blogger W, at 5:06 PM  

  • What is wrong with people these days? Whatever happened to keeping normal pets, like goldfish for crying out aloud. I've never heard of anyone being mauled or squeezed to death by their pet fish...

  • Hey Mushy...wanna come over this weekend and play with my stingray...

  • I don't mind those little harmless ones, with no teeth and no poison, but a 3m long one? Not a smart decision.

  • The snake on the run in Dubai was probably living with some appalling expats who leave the maid to raise the expat brat kids, are rude to sweet Filipino waitresses in restaurants and are generally repugnant human beings. "I'm mad as hell and I can't take these idiots anymore!" he would have hissed as he slunk off, probably to go and live on the beach. Then he'll get spotted by another fool who'll call the paper and say there's a plague of sea snakes. Because 7 Dyas hasn't run the sea snake story for months now...

  • This isnt a plague of biblical proportions is it Georgia?

  • Oh hi's Georgia here.
    Just want to let you all know that I'm living in Dubai these days, that I'm a huge drinker and a complete slut.
    Did I mention I'm an expat ??
    I have a fabulous life.
    I'm drunk 5 nights a week and I have sex all the time.
    Did I mention I'm an expat ??
    And a slut ??
    God I'm so hungover...because I'm such a huge drinker. It's just the way it is here...what with being an expat slut and all that.
    I wonder if anyone has ever lived such an exciting lifestyle...

  • Think Shroom lives something similar...

  • I've seen your film work goblet, very impressive....

    By Blogger mushroom, at 8:27 PM  

  • Fingers, you clearly have a bee in your bonnet. Or possibly in your underpants.

    Shroom, everything here is of Biblical proportions. Or Koranical proportions...

    And who in here is excited about the release of the movie Snakes On A Plane? Early reviews suggest the film is not all it's cracked up to be but Samuel L. Jackson demanding motherfucking snakes get off his motherfucking plane - that's gotta be cool.

  • meh, the whole snakes on the plane thing.. doesnt do anything for me. I cant help but think its going to resemble 'Flying High' from the 80's. I guess I like a LITTLE reality in my films .. which may possibly be an impossible feat.

    By Blogger Ms Smack, at 8:26 PM  

  • I fervently hope it resembles Flying Hgh...

    By Blogger Georgia, at 11:10 PM  

  • I didnt want to have a snake as a pet. Maybe its owner didnt feed it regularry, hahaha

  • Nature is taking revenge. There'll be an uprising.
    Stingrays will learn to walk and barb us all, and fucking trees will jump out in front of our cars!

    Yes i'm tacky. Meh!

  • And Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old so has carked it now too. Early reports suggest he just lost the will to go on.

    By Blogger Georgia, at 10:00 PM  

  • "Come here snakey, give us a big huggggg ahhhhh!

    Moral of the story:
    Never hug a snake with a medical condition in a shed.
