Evil Granny Kills Baby Rattlesnake With Her Bare Hands

Evil Granny Kills Baby Rattlesnake With Her Bare Hands

By Robert Paul Reyes


"An 87-year-old Tampa woman had had it with the motherloving snakes on her motherloving porch.

So when a seven-inch pygmy rattlesnake slithered up to Esther Orring`s door and bit her on the hand, she got even, strangling the venomous little serpent with her bare hands." BRIAN HAMACHER / NBCMiami.Com

Esther is basking in the attention, but I don`t see her actions as heroic. Snakes and alligators have as much right to live in the Sunshine State as the old hag.

If we encroach on the habitat of snakes and other wild animals, it`s not surprising if they defend their turf. It`s the old lady who`s the interloper, not the baby snake.

Esther has been hospitalized since she murdered the little snake, when she`s released she should be charged with cruelty to animals.

For those who think I`m being too harsh on little old granny, let me tell you that she plans on having the snake framed. Granny didn`t see the tiny snake as one of god`s creatures, but as an object to be framed.
