A man, who was said to be “was obsessed with snakes, spiders, and birds,” was apparently killed by one of his pet snakes. According multiple sources, 31-year-old Dan Brandon was found dead from asphyxiation in his home in Church Crookham, Southern England.
One of Brandon’s pet pythons was found loose in the same room. According to the Telegraph, the authorities believe that the python crushed Brandon. On a fundraiser set up by Brandon’s friend, his love of all animals was noted:
We have struggled when looking for photos for his funeral to find any when he isn’t holding a spider, snake, small bird, toad, slow worm, hedgehog, feeding a fox, stroking cattle, befriending a cat or dog so these charities seemed the perfect choice.
The situation is still being investigated, but at this point in time, Brandon’s death is not considered to be suspicious.
