Giant Python ‘Commits Suicide’ In Imo Zoo


The python immortalized at Imo state Zoo

This sounds weird but that’s what it is. A huge python kept in Imo State government-owned zoo starved to death while in captivity following what looked like a ‘hunger strike’.

Zoo attendants told massmediang that the snake was brought to the zoo early this year but was apparently not comfortable with denial of freedom after it was placed in a cage.

The snake continued to reject food thrown into the cage by attendants until it died of starvation.

Literally speaking, the python died of ‘hunger strike’ shortly after it was brought to the zoo located at old Nekede road, Owerri.

Zoo attendants then used chemicals to preserve the dead python and keep in the zoo museum where it currently is.
