YDI for owning a snake. Let's make smart decisions. It could strangle you at any time. Way to fail.
lol, like a six foot snake could eat a human. rabbits are about right for a six foot snake. i have a 3-4 foot snake and he's on medium to large rats op, be more careful about your snake cages. snakes are escape artists; if they find an opening they will use it. and if you dont fix it, they will use it again in a fraction of the time taken to find it the first time. i kind of feel like it's not a good idea for the neighbors to have been letting their rabbit around the yard unsupervised, either? unless it's a small yard that's incredibly secure, but if it got out, it might have been killed by a dog or something anyway.
#16: I've owned over 60 pet snakes before (and yes, they were all well cared for, and we rescued them from horrible pet owners). A six-foot snake would not be able to kill/eat you. The only way it would kill you is if it was highly posionous, and in that case, it would have been crazy for the person to not de-fang them.
I used to let my rabbit out to run around and eat grass and shit in the front yard all day, and he was fine. I don't see the problem. But he was calm, so it's not like he just ran into other people's yards and got away. & he would come if I called his name. If I can train my rabbit to be safe outside, then other people should make sure their pets don't get out and kill their neighbors. What's funny is that my rabbit was safe every time, but he got killed when he was in his secure cage that's hard for even people to unlock. Maybe13-year-old girls that can't even handle a Siberian Husky shouldn't be "walking" them while riding on a skateboard, then letting them get loose to go into someone's yard and break open their rabbit's locked cage, and not catching it by the time it got opened, or even by the time the rabbit ran 2 blocks to get away but then faced a bloody death and animal control had to clean it up and I had to come home to a broken into cage, dog poop on my front porch, rabbit fur everywhere, and my bunny gone. >:(
@ #12, I don't think Minnesota has a temperate climate. @ #60, I've seen evidence of at least a dozen rabbits that have been taken by flying predators (Hawks) though admittedly it does depend on the region and size of the rabbit. Foxes, Wolves, Feral Cats, Coyotes, Feral Dogs etc would have no problem getting at a rabbit in a yard, even a fenced in one if they are hungry enough. And you also have to take into account the human predators, the sickos that break into peoples yards and kill pets, by ringing their necks, throwing them around the yard, kicking them to death etc etc
My 6 foot snake constricted your mom last night
At least it wasn't constricting them.
