You have got to be kidding me they are blaming the snake for defending itself ? all they had to do was go around the snake and leave it be .. but the father decided to play god and kill it ???? and they were on a reserve isnt killing animals on a reserve illegal ?

This is so ridiculous, for one thing... shes 15! PAY ATTENTION... Second, you are outside, sorry that it happened, but come on, find someone else to mess with. You could get bit in your back yard. Absolutely ridiculous :(

RIDICULOUS!!! They should have left it alone. I blame the father in this one!!

Its not in the biology of an atrox to "fly in the direction" of anything. He not only did something illegal and stupid by messing with an atrox, but he flung the snake at his daughter. the sad part is that many ppl wont see that the fault was on the individual and not on the snake.

In regards to the father who chose to throw the snade, not exactly the brightest person, is he? You don't mess with nature and not expect any problems, stupid.
