Python hunt going as well as expected

Andrew Redington

Snakes, as it turns out, are really hard to find in a swamp

The real-life version of Whacking Day, the Great Florida Python Hunt, is going as well as could be expected. No one has died, but two hunters from Tennessee were pulled from the Swamp after becoming "dazed and disoriented" this week by local Sheriff's authorities. They were treated at the scene and declined a hospital trip, because they are men who hunt snakes for fun in the Florida Everglades.

The best note from the article: despite nearly a month of effort by 1500 hunters combing the swamps day and night for snakes that average twelve feet in length, this is what they have to show for it.

More than 1,500 participants of a month-long python challenge have helped to capture 50 Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades.

Hey, everyone gets three percent of a snake if you divide them evenly.
