    So they want to 'blast' a cavern section and nobody did a prior survey to discover the potential geostructural ramifications?

    They are so stupid, these so called 'engineers' in SA.

    Killing this creature deliberately would be unacceptable to many, including me, killing it seemingly because they did not know it was there is sheer incompetence: what if someone had been in there?

    I bet they killed it for the publicity.

    Better publicity would have been to feed Lula to it....only problem, the snake might have puked him up.

    interestingly, was it a male or female,
    and what are the chances of more family members, looking for their lost one,

    Watch out workers, they may be hunting

    Frightening creature?
    Judging from the outcome, the only frightening actors here are human beings.
    This sad story reveals the extent to which a model of development based on destruction is obliterating the last remainings of natural habitat in our battered planet.
    In a way, we all die a bit together with the majestic anaconda.
