This will only kill the stupid pythons. In a few years, the Everglades will be re-infested except now the snakes will be super-intelligent and have a vendetta against man.

My plan was to develop solar-power killbots armed with a small semiauto 0.22 barrel with a massive magazine.

Of course it will be Three Laws Safe to ensure they will never turn on their human masters.

Frank N Stein: Massa Damnata: give them all fully automatic 'hunting' weapons

I don't even know what you're trying to get at with this statement.

He's saying that we need to send armed teachers out there.

"Participants do not need hunting licenses, unless they're under 18, or have prior experience with snakes. The only required training can be done online. Given those slender requirements, some have questioned the wisdom of encouraging amateurs with firearms, particularly non-hunters, to take on pythons in the wild."

I see it as a win-win situation. We wind up culling both pythons AND gun-loving Floridians and others.

Don't be a dumbass. Everyone knows you hunt pythons with hand grenades.

douchebag/hater: Thunderbox: By all means, keep destroying the balance of nature, until there's no nature left.

Stupid comment.
1) Burmese pythons are not native to the Everglades
2) Burmese pythons are currently destroying the eco-system; one example is that the white tail deer population is
down 90%(!!!!) due to the pythons eating them. Many other species are experiencing similar declines.
3) Burmese pythons have no natural predators in the Everglades so bring on the harvesting
4) Next time RTFA, ya ignorant tree-hugger.

I really, really, really hope that the pythons manage to achieve a 1-to-1 kill ration, but I will be happy if they manage to take down just a single hunter.

/Nothing against hunting or hunters, I am a hunter myself

Sure something could go wrong: the hunters might not accidentally shoot each other.

I preferred the earlier green lit headline better.

This is a new group of 400 guys.

/The first group went into the swamps and haven't been heard from since.

I'm not sure how this will go. After all, people shoot cows thinking they're deer. I'd think snakes would be much harder to identify.
