  1. Get a Cajun chef to come up with some tasty python dishes….blackened, Étouffée, gumbo, jambalaya….

    with an open season….problem solved.

  2. Pulled python, snake and kidney pie, python à la King (tastes like chicken), swamp nuggets, fanged fajitas, …

  3. Meanwhile, in CA, a team of doctors won the booby prize of having to remove hammers from Paul Pelosi’s head and/or ass.

  4. Well at least one swamp is getting cleaned out!

    Wait what! “Invasive”??? Don’t they mean undocumented immigrants?

  6. The article failed to mention what happened to the snakes that were captured (not killed). Catch and release? Where are all the PETA shitheads?

    Tony R,
    PITA wants to save them? Then they can have them.
    With the stipulations that they keep them contained, fed, watered, well cared for. At their cost. No gubberment grants or loans.

    I’m with all the others above that want to open python meat markets, complete with recipes.

  8. The first sign that something was wrong was his discovery of his missing wife’s sandals, jacket, headscarf and knife on the forest floor.

    The second sign was a heavily bloated snake, encountered by a search party looking for Jahrah the following morning.

    “During the search the team found a giant python, measuring 7 meters [22 feet] in length, which we suspected had preyed on the victim,” the local police later said in a statement, which had referred to the victim simply as “Jahrah,” in line with the Indonesian custom of going by just one name. “The team captured the snake.”

    The Florida man deserves the money. The above story happened in Sumatra 4 days ago.


  9. I seem to recall a story from India, where the government put out a bounty on every cobra killed. People started breeding the damn things, harvesting them, and then turning in the bodies for the bounty. Once the government realized that they were actually subsidizing a breeding program, they withdrew the bounty. The snakes immediately became worthless and people simply dumped them to avoid the cost of raising them — creating an even bigger infestation than the one they were trying to solve in the first place.

  10. Yet another reason for me not to move to Florida.
