The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced its “Python Pickup Program,” which is a program where anyone who catches a python can submit a photo of it and win the grand prize of…. a t-shirt!
Professional python wrangler Ruben Ramirez advised people who spot pythons to call the wildlife’s agency instead of catching it themselves.
People are concerned with the announcement of this project because of the danger this program could bring. All I know is that if I ever saw a python I would run the other way. I don’t even like snakeskin boots! Yikes! ~grace
