Police say 34-year-old Keith Paro got into an argument with his girlfriend as she sat inside a hot tub. Enraged over whatever it was they were fighting about, Paro allegedly retrieved his 4-foot ball python from its cage, then used it to whip his girlfriend.
After beating her with his snake, he tossed the animal into the hot tub, killing it. He also threw a set of temporary stairs at the woman, trashed the house, stole some items, and fled the scene before police arrived. His girlfriend was not seriously injured, suffering bruising to her knees, back, arms and stomach.
Paro would end up turning himself in to police and has been charged with domestic assault and battery, larceny over $250, wanton and malicious damage over $250, and cruelty to animals.
This isn’t the first time we have reported on a man beating his girlfriend with an animal. Back in September, we reported on 42-year-old Michael Jones, the man accused of beating his girlfriend with her own dog.
