CNNBurmese pythons have been threatening Florida’s ecosystem for years, so the state is turning to the public for help in the form of a hunting contest to cull the population. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has announced the 2013 Python Challenge beginning in January. “We are hoping to gauge from the python challenge the effectiveness of using an incentive-based model as a tool to address this problem,” says Florida Wildlife Commission spokeswoman Carli Segelson. A grand prize of $1,500 will be awarded to the person who kills the most pythons, and $1,000 will go to the person who bags the longest one. According to the rules, road kill will not be eligible.

About damn time. As far as I know real life Anaconda has been going down in Florida for years now. Only a matter of time before real life Ice Cube becomes the token black guy in real life and gets his ass digested.

After that the only thing the state needs get rid of to make it respectable again is the Jaguars.
