I am a snake catcher and reptile carer i am curious as to why you think this story is even news. We as a group work very hard to educate the public that carpet pythons are not dangerous . If you leave them alone they will not as you say attack. It would be great if put a positive story up for once. And to go to hospital for a python really ? If you need facts do some research contact my rescue group if you need or just make it up to sensationalise as the media quite often does.
