Python Hunting Season Set For South Florida 4

Posted by samzenpus
from the snakes-on-a-floodplain dept.
Instead of lining up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat, Florida officials have decided to open a season for hunting pythons. Anyone who has a hunting license and gets a $26 permit can kill the snakes from March 8 to April 17 on state-managed lands around the Everglades in South Florida. In addition to the non-native pythons, hunters are encouraged to kill any green anacondas and Nile monitor lizards they might find.

      Now, what about the excess deer and alligators?

      Last I read, the alien reptiles plus the feral hog populations were devastating their numbers.

      Feral hogs in particular have reach epidemic population levels and show no sign of slowing their explosive growth. Furthermore, they are become more aggressive than ever. Worse, they are also growing larger than ever with some extremely aggressive males reaching 900lbs and new records of over 1200lbs. They will literally kill and eat anything within their territory,

      Its not known why their populations have recently

        Interesting. I knew that Texas has a problem; didn't know about FL.

        Its not known why their populations have recently changed from relatively stable levels to exponential growth, world wide

        Aren't the answers obvious:

        • Anthropogenic Global Warming, and
        • Leftist fear of guns in the hands of anyone except Palestinians.

          Most all southern states have feral hog issues. In particular, those in central south and south eastern states are especially problematic. This obviously includes Texas, Oklahoma, Louisianian, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
