The estimate is 100,000, and rising. Pythons in Florida are eating up the native wildlife. TV wildlife shows on this topic frighten me to death about fruitless attempts to capture these animals, which breed madly in the environment that is being so friendly to them. I wrote to the Secretary of Agriculture about it, never received a reply. Wildlife authorities expect the invasion to cross west and north. I am sure the snakes will love the Louisiana bayous but doubt they will make it farther up the continent.
The main thing is, Florida’s native animals are being devoured. Will someone tell me what is being done about it?
