    No I would not. A wild animal carries diseases and why kill a squirl when you have plenty of rats to choose from.

      I agree with Follow! Ask me and this is poor husbandry since it puts the snake at risk.

      Not cool!

      EDIT: this is also the stupid kind of thing that gives herp owners a bad name, and could add fuel to the fire of those that feel that large constrictors could have a large scale, and negative, impact on the presence of native species.

          Glad Im not the only one that feels he's an idiot. I am waiting for someone to say something along the lines of how they eat it in the wild so whats the difference.

              Heck no! Its scary to think that from the size of the snake he may have had it for a while.. God knows what else its eaten throughout its life.

                Yeah, that is always the argument of ignorant people who enjoy watching their pet snakes eat live animals like that for their amusement with no regards for the snake's health.

                  The kid didn't even know if the bullet was still in the squirrel!
                  And he said is took the snake about an hour to eat it. (was in the description on his youtube)

                            Man that is so stupid. I wouldn't put my boa at risk to the possibility of disease or parasites that the squirrel could be carrying. I agree that it also can give herpers and boas a bad name. People who take care of their pets that poorly and post videos like that on youtube are just morons.
