A particularly big python found out the hard way that it’s never a good idea to mess with a goat. The goat’s owner, Rachel Elizabeth Valverde posted footage on Facebook of a 12-foot-long python attempting to swallow a goat whole. Shortly after the snake and goat appear onscreen, the person filming (which appears to possibly be her husband) pulls a gun and shoots the snake, causing it to make a run for it before being gunned down.

“12ft Python thought eating one of our goats for dinner was a good idea!,” said Valverde in her post.

We’re assuming the footage is from the Naples, Florida, area, since that’s where Valverde is from, but it’s not completely clear on exactly where this occurred.
