An 8st killer snake was let loose at Kirkburton CofE Primary School

An 8st killer snake was let loose at Kirkburton CofE Primary School... and children stroked it. Hector, a 20ft-long python, visited children taking part in the Summer Safari scheme organised by Kirklees Countryside Services. The youngsters were able to stroke Hector, being held here by safari helper Gary Lawford, and later the python was let loose in the school's grounds. Said Colne Valley Countryside Project Officer Mr Mike O'Roarke: "Pythons are capable to killing humans if the are annoyed. But Hector is very timid and perfectly safe if handled by experts. The idea was to give youngsters some awareness of wildlife and the scheme has included playing games and activities connected with wild animals and safari" Hector is owned by a Penistone colleague of Mr O'Roarke. 3rd August 1988
