AFRICAN ROCK PYTHON KILLED 2 CANADIAN BOYS

The African rock python that killed two boys in Campbellton, New Brunswick Canada, on Monday wasn't the only banned species found at the Reptile Ocean pet store, officials say.
Twenty-seven illegal animals, including some endangered ones, have been removed from the three-storey building, including the top-floor residence, said Bry Loyst from Peterborough's Indian River Reptile Zoo, who is assisting the provincial Department of Natural Resources and the RCMP.
  • But four of them — large American alligators — had to be euthanized on site because no zoos were able to accommodate them, officials said. A statement from DNR, however, said the decision to euthanize was made primarily "due to safety concerns" for the people involved in removing the animals.
  • Two small crocodiles, called dwarf caimans, were removed.
  • Some of the other animals included a variety of crocodile species, sulcata tortoises, iguanas and green anacondas, said Bruce Dougan, the manager of Moncton's Magnetic Hill Zoo, who is also assisting.
  • Hundreds of animals remain in the store, Loyst told CBC News.
