Navarre pets fall victim to backyard snake

| Staff Reporters

On a recent July morning, Andrew Thompson let Bitty and Bentley, his two Yorkshire terriers outside, just as he had done for years.

They had both been outside for about 5 minutes before Bentley came bolting back in. This behavior wasn’t out of the ordinary for Bentley, who is still a puppy, Andrew said. What was out of the ordinary was the fact that 12-year-old Bitty had not come back with Bentley. 

Bitty and Bentley were best friends and deeply loved by owners Andrew and Will Thompson. Bitty, who is being used as a chair by Bentley, was killed earlier this month after being bitten by a venomous snake in the backyard of his Navarre home. Submitted photo
