Any hunt sabs up for Florida ?
Today marks the start of a month long state sponsored python hunt in Florida. The quarry are Burmese Pythons. Escaped pets that are having a whale of a time in the Everglades, breeding like snakes and decimating the indigenous fauna. The hunters are an army of amateur backwoodsmen, survivalists and gun-nuts for a free society who armed with every kind of weapon from machetes to light machine guns will be making a sweep across the state in an effort to eradicate the pests. My suspicion is that the the hunters will be a very real danger - to each other. The only thing that Florida is short of at the moment is some of our own hunt sabs - preferably one with dreads and maximum facial piercing. Interesting take on it all here.
