CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- A college student working the night shift at a Venezuelan zoo is dead after letting a 10-foot python out of its enclosure.
Javier Hernandez manages the small zoo at Caracas' General Francisco de Miranda Park. He said Monday that 29-year-old Erick Arrieta violated park rules by letting the Asian python out early Saturday.
The biology major was found strangled to death, with a snake bite on his left wrist.
The python turned up down the hall.
