Yet Another Village Idiot Tries To Wake A SLEEPING ANACONDA
Didn’t these guys see the movie, “Anaconda”? Remember Ice Cube got swallowed? It takes a village idiot to wake up an anaconda snake that’s basically bigger than your boat… Most people would run, swim or jet the other way, but..
.. For whatever reason, that wasn’t the case for this man and his fishermen friends.
On the Santa Maria River in Brazil, these fishermen came across a giant snake resting after a meal. Instead of taking its slumber as a blessing, however, they decided to reach for it with their bare hands and drag it up and down the river.

Florida has more of a problem with Burmese Pythons, introduced unnaturally. They are boids, but not part of the ‘Boa’ species.
While the snake may have been too incapacitated to fight them off right then and there, let’s hope he doesn’t have a penchant for revenge. Luckily, as the video states, the men did get charged with a $600 fine. Maybe a blow to their wallets will be more persuasive than a potential anaconda choke slam.
If the snake would have knocked the boat over, and possibly squeezed one of these wackadoos blood flow, and consumed him, it would be the snakes fault. Of course it was full, and just wanting to be left alone. I think the fine fits the crime, and I would think some sort of community service with endangered species would be helpful. It’s sad we believe we can just mess with wildlife. And people will mess with creatures, and blame them when they get hurt…we’ve been doing forever.
The only time snakes kill people is when people intrude upon their territory, mishandle them, attack them or threaten them. The snake was not bothering anyone! This is a terrible disturbance that they did. When people go in to wildlife areas they should respect the creatures that live there.
