Disturbing Sights at the Zoo

On Saturday, we decided we had to have a family day. Jeff has been gone a lot in the past few weeks so we were determined to spend some time together. Luckily for us, the zoo was having their Harvest Fest. They had lots of different demonstrations, "fishing" for the kids, music, and all the rides were free. What we didn't expect was the "extra" feature that was added to the zoo that day that was quite disturbing. What a sight! Here are the kids having fun on the rides.... Regan driving the boat....
Jadyn and Brooke enjoying the Polar Bear... still very enjoyable. Jadyn and Brennan playing in the kid farm area... still a good time. Regan, Jadyn & Brooke being goofy on the train... goofy, but not disturbing. Wait for it, Wait for it....... Here it is!!! The zoo decided to feed the Python that day! EWWW!!!! Apparently, the python has to eat something live. So, they threw a live pig in there. After squeezing it to death, it begins to eat. Yes, that is blood all over the ground.
And this is the Python's big ole' mouth eating the head of the pig. Makes your stomach turn, doesn't it? It's one of those things that is so gross, but you can't help but look at. Needless to say, we got a little more than expected from our trip to the zoo.

Oh that's so sad. I feel bad for that poor little pig. Although he probably would've been turned into bacon sooner or later :)
