A 12-foot Burmese python blamed for cat disappearances has been hailed as a hero by mice and rabbits.
The snake, captured by Florida police, was dubbed ‘Scaly Justice’ by small animals for its rumored tendency to consume cats.
Sparrow Tom Booker said: “Cats killed my brother by repeatedly throwing him in the air, chewing him a bit then leaving him on a doormat.
“This snake is two-and-a-bit metres of cat karma and it deserves a medal.”
Rabbit Emma Bradford added: “Everything except humans hates cats.
“I don’t agree with being a carnivore but when I heard about what this snake was doing I just thought ‘yeah cats, have some’.”
