I found this shocking video on youtube of someones pet snake, some sort of boa i would think but dont know, killing a goat.
I dont know if its been posted on here before, or if anyone has seen it.

What you all think?
I certainly don't like it, even if people say its natural, which it isn't, because i dont think a snake would kill something that size and in captivity animals feel pain more than they would in the wild where something in their head makes them cut it out.

'"Life in captivity is not as stressful as life in the wild."
In nature, the time between a prey animal first perceiving a threat and finally being killed is relatively short. Also, in a natural situation, biological systems can block the prey's psychological stress and physical pain, so even the most gruesome deaths aren't as terrible as they appear. In captivity, this mechanism breaks down as predator/prey interactions are nullified, behavioural opportunities interfered with and natural mindsets altered. Captive animals probably experience physical and psychological suffering much more sharply. Even if, superficially, captives seem 'content', the stress is largely continuous and unnatural, from the moment of capture or birth in captivity to death.'

You need to click the box to confirm you are aware it has been flagged as inappropriate. If you don't have an account you probably wont be able to see it until you sign up and log in. I have seen it before, not a nice video really and listening to them blokes in the background makes me a little angry... They are getting such kicks out of it! :cry:

Ah, that'll be because you either dont have flash player, not a youtube member or signed in, the latter two you need because people have complained about it and its "graphic nature".

If you listen carefully to the guys talking you can hear them talking about getting a dog next :shock: :x :evil:

I've seen that one before - bloody idiots - just listen to them.

Totally unnecessary, and possibly dangerous for any captive snake feeding something like that.

I doubt the goat enjoyed it either.

3rd time this has been posted :)

all i can say is atleast the snake is being fed and not staved to death as for being a live goat, we kill animals for us to eat so how come its bad for a snake to kill food for itself to it. the snake is probably not cared for very well. dunno what else i can say other than the guys do sound like morons.

o and its a burm not a boa :)
