I live in the state that is currently hosting The Great Floridian Python Hunt. Over 1,000 people have joined the hunt and according to a local television station out of Orlando, WESH 2, about 22 snakes have been killed.
The reason this killing spree is necessary is that irresponsible people had let their pythons escape into the wild, or even worse they released them into the wild and now like a bad syfy movie they are taking over. It is no longer safe for small pets to be let out unattended because of the wild exotic animals.
Snakes aren’t the only problem. There are wild iguanas, monitor lizards, birds and many more exotic animals wandering around.
This can’t be good.
