A three meter long python has reportedly attacked a young boy in Australia and dragged him into the swimming pool in his backyard.
The father explained that he suddenly saw a large shadow coming out of a bush, and then everything happened very quickly: in no time at all the animal wrapped itself around the boy's leg. Beau's 76-year-old grandpa promptly jumped in and pulled the boy out of the pool before the father was able to free his son from the constrictor's grip.
The little one suffered a minor bite wound on his ankle, but was otherwise fine. "I think the python was waiting for a victim, a bird or something, and then chose Beau," the father said. The family released the python back into the bush - but she didn't want to leave. "The naughty thing returned to the scene of the crime," said the father. Australia is known for its unique but also dangerous wildlife.
