The American army have opened flood gates in Louisiana to try and protect large cities along the Mississippi River. The move means some 3,000 square miles of land will be flooded, some 25,000 people and 11,000 buildings may be effected.
Boing Boing have unearthed a photo that suggests some rather interesting animals have also been effected. This photograph apparently shows a huge snake, fleeing along the roadside, away from the flood waters.
In Pure Spirit
Boing Boing hopes the photo is a fake. What do you think? Is it real?
