Python Hunting Contest Opens In Everglades

In an effort to control the Everglades’ population of invasive Burmese Pythons, which can grow to 20 feet long, Florida officials opened a month-long hunting contest in which professional and amateur snake hunters will compete for cash prizes based on the number of snakes they kill. What do you think?

  • “I hope they don’t kill any of the cute little 10-foot pythons.”

    Georgina Stader
    Dietitian
  • “What a thrill for amateur snake hunters to be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the pros of snake hunting!”

    Gil Sabine
    Rod Bending Machine Operator
  • “I predict this will end badly for someone. Most likely someone who puts a lot of time and effort into this contest and comes up short by a few snakes.”
