Snake Kills Two Boys

August 8, 2013 by staff 

Snake Kills Two Boys, THE first pictures have emerged of the little boys killed by a giant African Rock Python that somehow escaped from a pet store.

Connor and Noah Barth were spending the night with Jean-Claude Savoie, who lives above the Reptile Ocean pet store that he owns in the New Brunswick, Canada, city of Campbellton.

Mr Savoie described to Global News how he walked into the living room and found the two boys dead about 6.30am on Monday. He found the snake coiled nearby.

He said the snake had made its way upstairs into his apartment through ventilation ducts and then moved into the ceiling before dropping through a hole and attacking the sleeping boys

Mr Savoie said he believes the snake coiled around both children and crushed them as they slept together on the floor.

The tragic youngsters with ‘Mr Slithers’ a harmless corn snake kept as a pet by their mother.

The National Post reports that the snake was an African rock python about 5m in length and that its owner had described it as “vicious”.

Tim Thomas, a former Reptile Ocean employee, told the newspaper that when he learned of the tragedy, he immediately called Mr Savoie’s best friend, Mandy Trecartin, who told him it was her boys who were killed.

Ms Fournier told MailIOnline that Mr Savoie operated Reptile Ocean as both a pet shop and as a zoo.

He kept numerous snakes and lizards and small crocodiles to sell, but he hosted tour groups.

“He always had kids going in there to visit like school kids and groups,” she said.
