An escaped python strangled a 51-year-old woman to death at a zoo in Stavropol in southwest Russia, Interfax reported, citing the local prosecutor's office.
The woman's body was found Monday morning with traces of snake skin embedded in strangulation marks in her neck, Interfax said. The woman may have worked in a small zoo attached to a circus and may have been attacked while drunk, Interfax said.
The two-meter-long snake has since been caught and returned to its cage.
