The link has the whole story but what it read is that wild pythons are being caught and killed because some irrresponsiable pet owners failed to feed their snakes and the snakes went hunting and children suffered for it. i feel deeply for the families who have lost children I realy do but with such a low number of deaths since 1980 it baffles me why they are choosing to go after them for that reason. if they had said due to overpopulation we need to take action I might feel better but it seems like they are just doing it to pacify the puplic. sad for the snakes they are such pretty creatures
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida's governor is asking wildlife officials to begin trapping pythons right away
The Humane Society of the United States said at least 12 people have been killed in the U.S. by pet pythons since 1980, including five children.

I guess I strongly feel like if the pet owners fed the animals like they were supposed to these deaths would not be happening. if you starve a cat or dog guess what after a while you start to look like dinner it is a fact of life feed your pets and you won't become dinner! if there is an overpopulation problem than yes something needs to be done but why do they have to die?
