We now know the charge being faced by the owner of an African Rock Python that killed two young boys: criminal negligence causing death. CBC News and the Canadian Press are reporting that today. Jean-Claude Savoie was arrested on February 5 but the charge was not specified at the time. Savoie is the former owner of an exotic pet store in Campbellton, New Brunswick; the four-metre-plus, 45-kilogram python escaped its cage and asphyxiated the boys as they slept during an overnight stay.
