Brazil Officials Catch Calf-Swallowing Anaconda
By Telma Marotto
Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Brazilian wildlife officials captured a six-meter-long Anaconda that was resting on a farm in the
southeastern state of Minas Gerais after it swallowed a 330 pound calf, BandNews channel reported.
The snake was motionless in a shed at the farm, digesting the calf, when it was found, BandNews said. It took seven men to lift the snake onto a truck to remove it from the farm, BandNews said. The television station broadcast video of the speckled brown snake, its middle bulging from its meal, being hoisted onto the truck.
The reptile expelled the dead calf during transportation and was released in the Parnaiba River after being examined, BandNews said.

so durring dubya's morning briefing Rumsfield reports that two Brazilian soldiers died. And Bush gets all upset and hangs his head. Everyone in the office is moved by their comander in chief's empathy. Bush raises his head visably shaken and ask how many is a brazillon.
