Some people are just plain dumb. Any parent with any common sense/love for their child would never have a dangerous "pet" like this in the home, let alone 2 like these people did. Of course any home can have potential for danger but this is just blatant disregard for the safety of a child. They truly should be punished for this.

This is your typical FL white trash. And what are two adults doing still asleep at 9:30am? No one works? Charges need to be filed against the two rednecks. Dumb and dumber.

Stupid white trash Jerry Springer rejects. Had that snake been fed properly, he wouldn't have attacked that poor baby.

But I blame Mom for all this. I wouldn't allow ANY snake in the house with my children. They must both be tweekers. White trash!

It takes a special kind of idiot to keep a dangerous animal like that around small children .

when i first heard the early CNN news, my first thoughts was White Trash

the keeping of these types of snakes in the US, is predominately a white trash thing

good point on them still sleeping at 9:30 AM

fk, any parent with a dangerous snake in the home should have their kids taken away

Well central Florida is loaded with homegrown white trash, they are a "different breed".

BTW the "mother" is knocked up again. I guess the father is the idiot snake owner.

It is a tragedy that the little girl was killed by the family pet snake. But it was an accident. The mother and boyfriend can not be held accountable. This was a terrible, terrible accident. We should pray for the family to help them through this tragedy. I pray that God will help ease their pain.
I pray for all the family and friends who are suffering through this loss of their little girl. May God Bless you all and help ease your pain.

Thou this sad & up setting there are other snakes in the area.

Masking other issues through out fl..
Instead of reviwing, creating or moding laws to keep dangerous snakes out of homes.

Decided to jump on option for photo op.
There are snakes of these kinds in the Everglades.

But it would seem to me fixing the flooding issue keeping things like these snakes, gators, mold and virus's would have more impact.

to Canada: Yeah, it was an accident all right. Like dropping your infant off a bridge would be an accident. The parents are directly responsible and should go to prison.
