A heartbreaking incident occurred in Florida when a 38-pound African rock python strangled Duke, a 60-pound Siberian husky. The helpless dog took its last breaths as the serpent coiled around its neck in the family’s backyard on August 30. Emergency services were called but Duke passed away within five minutes. It is unclear when the dangerous snake entered the area southeast of Tamiami Trail and Krome Avenue in Miami, where snakes had been breeding. The homeowner stated that her son tried to save Duke with gardening scissors but failed due to the snake’s strength. Such incidents are not common in the area, and the homeowner urged everyone to be careful, especially with young children.
