11 Pythons Caught In Hunt
Python Hunting Season Began One Month Ago

It has been one month since trappers started rounding up Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades.

So far, only 11 reptiles have been caught.

The python trapping season ends on Oct. 31, but Governor Charlie Crist is reportedly considering extending it through the cooler months. Trappers said it's easier to find snakes when the temperatures take a dip.

It is estimated that there could be as many as 100,000 Burmese pythons hiding out in the Everglades.

Uh, they're not "hiding out in the Everglades," they're jsut living their lives there like other wild animals are.

What is this "Hiding in the everglades nonsense" are they fugitives from justice or something? Surely these critters however they got there are just doing their snake thing and getting on with precariuos business of existing!

Are we to assume these snakes are being killed or what are they being trapped for?

I don't see what the fuss is about as we don't consider a 13 feet python dangerous in the UK and it's quite OK for it to eat a neighbours cat. See petition on Downing Street wesite to get such creature listed as dangerous. Currently they are not because they are not venomous. I assume this means being crushed to death is not dangerous unlike being bitten by a venomous creature. You could not make up this stuff for a comic book, the law is mad all over the world! Must be why lawyers are so rich they have produced the ultimate con a product only they can understand like the Emporer's new clothes!

Anybody know when the politician or lawyer hunting season starts? Perhaps there should be a hunter hunting season!

Humans caused this and the poor snakes are the ones who suffer.

The humans who turned the pythons loose are the truly evil ones. But I feel the pythons do not belong here. That's just my opinion and I respect your opinion and I expect you to respect mine. I wouldn't want them crawling around my home where I have furkids and small children as neighbors.
