Up here they trap and relocate nuisance Bears to another area, that way they can go bother someone else  :OK.  You know the old saying, out of sight out of mind

Looks like there's a lot of meat in one of those snakes  -C-

Haven't done any research on the hunters, but they probably are trained to recognize the nests and destroy the nest, as well as capturing and killing more mature snakes.  The dumb a$$(s) who buy one and releases or let's it get away is the cause.  Watch all hell break loose when one gets a hold of a person, and they don't have any fear.  They have been reported in populated areas.  Now to develop the market, and the demand!

I would like to volunteer my services in helping reduce the snake population.  That's as long as I get to keep any snake parts that I want. 
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

They are not relocated. You can keep the hides and meat after the state runs test, measure and weigh them.The Indian trappers are getting a little above minimum wage. A university study has found that the snakes are adapting to cold weather so good that in the next ten years they expect to see them with established colonies as far north as North Carolina.In the last year a Cobra got loose for a week in Orlando before someone blasted it in their garage and a mamba is still n the loose in Ocala National Forest. Also, the meat is tough and chewy. We BBQ'ed a 14' a few years ago. You can see the hide at Twin Oaks, it was gifted to Pappy.

Put it through a meat grinder, that will fix it  :OK

Unfortunately the pythons are eating the gators. Maybe they will help control the hog population.  (-_)

This one bit off more than it could chew. The gator busted out of the snake.  :o

You guys don't realize how rugged the 'Glades are and part of it is Reservation with another set of rules and then some is Federal land with their own set. If it was all under Redneck rules they would be gone pretty quick. )P(

take all the invasive and non-native plants and animals out of here and the State would have a different look.
