"Since 1980, the Humane Society of the United States, which opposes ownership of constrictor snakes, has documented more than 200 incidents of snake attacks, escapes, abandonments and cruelty cases in 43 states. The reptiles have been linked to the deaths of 16 people in the U.S., including seven children.

'These grim statistics include not only children who have fallen victim to the reckless behavior of others, but experienced snake handlers,' said Debbie Leahy, the organization's captive-wildlife specialist."
