More on Philly Snake Hunt
While several newspapers are still making nonsensical statements about the "cat-decapitating snake" on the loose in Bucks County, PA, one journalist has taken some advice and actually contacted a few reptile experts to put the case into perspective. From this article:
"A spokeswoman from the Philadelphia Zoo who is an expert on snakes said it's possible for snakes to eat small animals, but if they do, they will swallow them whole and not leave anything behind.
"She also said that a snake's appetite would be less than usual with the weather being cooler for this time of year. And, she added, that a snake may eat only once or twice every two weeks." ...
"Whatever is causing the problems in Bristol, experts have the same advice for all the residents who live close to this area: Relax."
