i understand it, but i don't like the crack about the pythons. freezing to death is not something to be flip about.

That's terrible news. No animal should die like this. :(

The only good thing one can say is at least these creatures were not exucuted either for hunters fun or corrupt state reassignment of grazing for cattle such as in the wild horse round ups!

It has been a long tough winter not only for wildlife but for humans as well. I don't think it's over. Stay warm and safe everyone.

I feel especially bad for the manatees. They really can't afford to lose any more of their species. Plus they're so adorable. Yes, not a nice thing to say about the snakes either. After all, who brought them up here ??? I'm sure they would've been happy in their native land.
