Python Done In by Its Dinner

MIAMI (AP) — Once again, a python has been done in by its dinner.

After one python exploded after trying to eat an alligator, a 10-foot African rock python was apparently trapped by the turkey it ate at a nursery. The snake couldn't slither back through a fence to digest the bird.

Nursery owner Felix Azquz, 77, noticed one bird was missing early Monday. Then he saw the bulging snake.

"It scared me," Azquz said. "I ran outside to call the police."

The snake will be taken to a zoo, said Capt. Al Cruz of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue antivenin unit.

Earlier this month, a 13-foot python burst as it tried to swallow a 6-foot American alligator in Everglades National Park. Neither animal survived.

On Sunday, a bulging 12-foot Burmese python was captured near the backyard of a Miami Gardens home. A snake expert said the python had eaten the homeowner's year-old Siamese cat named Frances.
