Is any 1980's WWF star safe? Expect the arrest of Hercules Hernandez any day now....

Lifted from The Sun, a newspaper in the U.K.:

WRESTLER Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts is being prosecuted — for starving his pet python to death.

RSPCA inspectors seized 12-ft Damien after a tip-off he was being neglected at the ex-WWF star’s home in London Colney, Herts.

The Burmese python died days later.

New Yorker Roberts, 50, denies causing unnecessary suffering.

He could be jailed for up to six months.

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 he's not being charged with possession with intention to distribute is probably the biggest shock.

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.

What's next?

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.

How long can snakes live? I'm surprised Damien made it THIS long. Unless, it's just a different snake with the same name.

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?

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)

It's funny; I didn't even think about that. I actually use that icon for any posts I start, generally (when I remember to add it)... but yeah, I guess you take that as a sarcastic `big shock' icon.

I seem to remember just reading that Jake has had many different Damiens. I'm sure the one that he carried around at WrestleMania V died long before Jake starved this one.

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.

I wouldn't take this story as totally correct. The source, The Sun newspaper, is a UK tabloid that has a reputation for stretching the truth.

Jake is engaged to an English girl and lives in London. He is active on the UK Indy scene.

Don't pythons need eat once every couple of months? It can't be that much of a hassle to feed one. Here's your piglet/rabbit/marmot... bon appetit.

And where the hell did Jake get the money to buy a house in London? If he's getting married, good for him. I hope he's getting his shit sorted out and is off the crack.

I think he did it to collect on Frankie's life insurance policy.
