Australia: Snake kills three kids

A Northern Territory woman is devastated after a big snake took three of her kids.

Noel Padgham, of Holtze, told the Northern Territory News she couldn’t believe her eyes, when she found one of the young goats dead, squashed and covered in slime laying in its pen. .

“I am sure it was a huge python, although nobody has ever seen him, I know he’s there – we’ve seen his tracks, his slime and what he did to the kid,” the 81-year-old farmer said.

Ms Padgham told the Northern Territory News she found her young goat dead in one of the pens of her Amalthea Downs property, shortly after the snake must have tried to swallow the young animal.
