"Experts say attacks by exotic snakes are extremely rare."

Well they would be wouldn't they? Most of us manage to completely avoid them.
You don't expect to find them in your bedroom.

There are a few things about this that boil down to suspicious coincidences.
Unfortunately life is filled with them, they are often known as wrong place wrong time.

Why would you let kids that young have a sleep over, I really hope the Post Mortem doest reveal anything else.

The snake was at least ten years old, it was a python possibly big enough to wrap itself around a car.

I agree SB, but that begs the question as to why a snake of that size was allowed to be for sale in a pet shop. I am not against snakes, and know someone who recently moved flat so as he could have a bigger oen with a room to house his "collection" , but would have hoped that animals that might be dangerous should only be housed under appropriate conditions. Bur maybe things are different in Canada

After ten years in the shop it sounds more like the shop owners pet being kept as tax deductible.
At 100lbs in weight it might be a bit big to sell yet it managed to sneak through the ventilation system.

It all sounds a bit too far fetched, but if there is any more to it the mounties will soon discover the truth

police enquires into this awful tragedy...the snake was kept in private apartment and the chain of events reads like something from a horror film....
