Python escapes reptile store, kills two young boys Published: August 5, 2013

CBC News in Windsor, Ontario, Canada reports that a nearly 15-foot-long, 100-pound python killed two boys after slithering through the ventilation shaft in the store where it was kept.

Police believe the African rock python escaped its enclosure in the store, Ocean Reptile, sometime overnight, moving into the apartment upstairs from the store, where it strangled the boys, who were five and seven years old.
