Florida holds snake hunting contest

Post by J_A pirate on Sat Jan 12, 2013 1:37 pm

The US state of Florida is set to begin a competitive Burmese python hunt, in an attempt to rid the Everglades wetlands of the invasive species.

The month-long contest, called the Python Challenge, begins on Saturday.

About 550 people have signed up to compete for two prizes: $1,000 (£620) for the longest python killed and $1,500 for the most pythons taken.

First imported as pets, the feral snakes vie with native animals for food and have devastated mammal populations.
The US banned the import of the carnivorous snakes last year. But some wildlife officials said the ban came too late - after the southern Asia natives had begun breeding in the Everglades.
Burmese pythons, which can grow up to 23ft (7m) long, eat small mammals, birds and alligators.
Hunters from more than 25 states have signed up for the event. Among them will be US Senator Bill Nelson, a 70-year-old Democrat.
The state will train hunters to avoid mistaking the python for native snakes, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) spokeswoman Carli Segelson said.
The FWC recommends shooting the snakes in the head or using a device that drives a bolt into the brain. Hunters will be able to keep the pelts.
Decapitation is not recommended unless the brain is immediately destroyed, as snakes can remain conscious for a time after the head is separated from the body.

To be fair, there are also repeat offenders. So 4.5.

We should count internet personas too, cause one douchebag in RL is usually 3 diff douchebags online, so 10.6 billion.

I really need help keeping track of this series now. Don't get me started on historical figures.

if we count politicians as 10 people (cause they bring at least that much more harm) then the state of texas alone will bump that count up to 12bln Very Happy

Even he isn't that stupid. See the thing about Bush is he's actually a really nice and funny guy that should never be in charge of anything. Like how Mike Birbiglia would say in his stand up (I'm paraphrasing), Oh Uncle George yeah he's a lot of fun. What? You put him in charge of everything. Oh no.

Yeah, he does look fun on his own. To the point where the ending to Harold & Kumar Escape Guantanamo Bay actually seems incredibly plausible. Just share a joint, hunt some animals, drink some whiskey and then sign the presidential pardon Very Happy

Yeah hated the second one. First was an unexpected masterpiece and third one took its own silliness and just ran with it xDD The 3D based jokes were bloody hilarious xD

Well it's not really a race thing there. I'm sure they're just bad people regardless of race. Because you described the opposite of me.
