Not sure why we're being so harsh on the hunters....anything that helps curb an invasive species like that should be appreciated by the granola munching tree hugging variety on Fark. Many native species have all but disappeared in the wake of the pythons in the swamp - deer, foxes, rabbits, birds, etc.

Nogale: dj_spanmaster: Nogale: Why don't the alligators eat them?

Some alligators do, but the gators aren't natural predators. The python, on the other hand, will eat alligators, no problem.

I don't understand how this works. Aren't gators aggressive and fast? Do they just lie around while a python snuggles up and starts constricting?


Well, gators are pretty lazy. Their offense is opportunity sneak attack based. And their defense ... well, you saw what happened in the bowl.

I'm honestly shocked that we didn't get a Fark team together for this event. This seems like the kind of stupidity that is right up our alley.

If ever there was an excuse for a reality TV show it has to be this.

No why would you wish that?
Sure the majority are most likely going to get their asses kicked by the swamp.
But I would think that would happen from the start, so most of the show will be over rather quickly.
But so what? They choose it, its what they wanted to do. Nobody is marching them out there at gun point.
It is pretty much a good thing that they are trying to do. Perhaps a bit misguided depending on your view point. But still, they're not hurting anybody, except maybe someone by an errant shot and hopefully some snakes.

Several reality show producers contacted me after I entered. I'm going to try my luck this weekend.

But the idea of luring weapon-wielding amateurs into the harsh environment of the Everglades has raised some alarms.

Alarms? no. Hopes of some awesome footage to laugh with great gusto at? Oh hell ya.

/cant laugh too hard, we have had a rattlesnake roundup every year in Texas since 1958.
