Florida 'python challenge' draws about 800 hunters

Published: 01.13.13, 08:29 / Israel News

An armed mob set out into the Florida Everglades on Saturday to flush out a scaly invader.

Florida is struggling with an infestation of Burmese pythons that are eating their way through a fragile ecosystem, and this is the State's plan to eradicate them. Nearly 800 people signed up for the month-long "Python Challenge" that started Saturday afternoon. The vast majority - 749 - are members of the general public who lack the permits usually required to harvest pythons on public lands. (AP)
