Being in the pet industry and been around snakes my whole life, you have to not feed a Burmese python for a LONG time to have it die of starvation. Safe to say the snake was not kept properly in more then one aspect. And you can't throw a fucking snake around like Jake does/did. I am surprised that PETA or the ASPCA or whatever animal rights was arouind back in the day didn't go after WWE for the way the snake/s was/were treated.
The real story here to meis that Jake owned a house in England! Nice.
That's not right. Ok, if he starve his poor pet to death I'm going to have to be very upset for a while because that just isn't right. Seriously, animalls need the same thing we all need. Tender lovin care. I can't hold this against him forever though because he is my favorite wrestler of all time.

Is Koko going to be arrested for inappropriate bird watching? Will Dynamite Kid get charged with dogslaughter for trying to run over Winston? Will George Steele ever find what "animal" he is supposed to be?
I'm also sorry.
Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!

Well, the story from the Observer says the LATEST version of Damien was starved to death. Apparently, there have been quite a few.
But in all seriousness, is it evil of me to be glad that Jake wasn't arrested for drugs again?

Edge: So Triple H wants me to come to Raw and fight him for the big gold belt. I've TOTALLY passed you on the card. Jericho: Yeah, but while Triple H is burying you, I get to make out with Trish in front of millions. You tell ME who the winner is here, junior!
Now seeing as it's Jake Roberts, I can understand everyone jumping to place the blame on him, but what if it's not directly his fault? What if Damien happened to catch the Heroes of Wrestling PPV, saw what happened to his ancestor and then starved himself to death out of fear? I mean, with no predators around, there's not really any other way for a snake to commit suicide. I think this deserves further investigation.
I really don't know if a story concerning "Jake Roberts" and "trouble" really warrents a shock face icon-header... So it's not the same snake we saw so many years ago, I wouldn't think it would. Does he have to name every pet python Damien. It's like that recent Simpson's episode that Snowball 2 died and they kept getting more cats who kept dying as they name it Snowball 3 to 7.

I wish I could say this was a surprise... but I don't think it points to cruelty so much as addle-headedness. Jake's burned off so many brain cells, he'd probably have a hard time remembering to feed a dog every day, let alone a snake that's only got to be fed once a week/month (depending on its last meal). At least a dog whines and bugs you when it's hungry... it's a lot harder to tell with the less expressive animals.
RIP, Damien v.(unknown)

Funny you mention that. Koko was in the Observer this week. A small Illinois paper talked to him about a fire that burned his house down and killed Frankie 2 years ago.

Pieman, could you tell the gruesome details that Tony mentioned on the radio show? I hope it was less painful than the aliens nabbing him. Chad was horrible today. I *hate* the new ATH. No trivia, baby!
