Florida's Python Challenge [View all]

In an effort to either reduce or eliminate the state's Burmese Python population the Florida Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has created a Python Challenge. The website for the challenge says that the purpose of the challenge is to make the public aware of the danger the Burmese Python can cause to the Everglades ecosystem.

In this challenge people who register and pay a $25 fee will be allowed to kill seemingly as many pythons as they like. The person who kills the most Pythons will win $1,500. The person who kills the longest Python will win $1,000.

So, what is the opinion of DU members?
