Looking for a job? Florida is searching for 50 brave people to hunt pythons

by MyParisTexas

Fancy yourself a good hunter? Well, why not contact the South Florida Water Management District and try your hand at hunting pythons!

The program is now currently accepting new python removal agents.

And before you think this may be a reality TV show, you’re wrong, this is a legit call out to help remove the invasive Burmese python.

The program works exactly like you think it would: authorized citizens, known as python removal agents, are paid by the hour to track and humanely dispatch pythons and other invasive, environmentally dangerous snake species. There are bonuses to be had as well: The program also pays extra for snakes measuring more than four feet or for snakes that were sent to the afterlife while guarding snake eggs.

The program began in 2017 to help curb the area’s non-native Burmese python population.

Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission describes the Burmese python, native to Asia, as “an invasive species which negatively impacts native wildlife in and around the Everglades ecosystem in south Florida.”

If it helps ease your conscience, pythons are typically six to 10 feet long and — this is directly quote from Florida Fish and Wildlife — “are capable of climbing.”

Since the inception of the Python Elimination Program, more than 2,500 pythons have been sent to the great beyond under its authorization. In fact, it’s proved so effective the SFWMD is petitioning to add $750,000 to the program’s funding.

CNN said they reached out to the SFWMD by phone for additional comment and is waiting to hear back.

“We’re going to be asking for 50 paid hunters,” program director Mike Kirkland told the Fort Myers News-Press . “It’s been a tremendous success, the most successful program in the history of the issue by a wide margin in terms of snakes caught and cost effectiveness.”

In order to be considered, you must be at least 18, have all of your IDs and documentation in order, and have no recent criminal history. Removal agents use a GPS tracking app to log their time spent hunting and tracking the creatures on public land. The South Florida Water Management District’s website has more information about the program.

Cl October 1, 2019 - 8:58 pm

They have been released by owners or have escaped during storms. They now have breeding populations.

Captain October 9, 2019 - 10:32 pm

NO.. the owners would be fined up to 1000.00 dollars for having 1. So they turned them loose instead of turning them in to be killed..

Lived in Miami ,Kendall ,Country Walk and Homestead area before and after Hurricane Andrew for several years familiar with situation and area and I’m a snake handler used to keep breeding pairs and capture in wild and sale

They weren’t released by their owners a hurricane destroyed a reptile breeding facility which released them all into the Everglades

Rhonda October 13, 2019 - 12:19 pm

The snakes were not release by owners, it was a facility that was destroyed during a hurricane. All the snakes

Nikki October 2, 2019 - 11:29 pm

People buy them as pets without having any clue how to care for them. They also have no idea how large Burmese pythons grow, or how long the live. After the cutest baby snakes get too large for them to take care of they just let them go into the wild.

Captain October 9, 2019 - 10:34 pm

No the owners turned them loose because they were going to get fined 1000.00 for having 1.

Alan G October 10, 2019 - 12:08 am

Very few if any were privately bred and released. The genetic markers on the ones captured indicate that they were most likely the result of flooding at the Miami Serpentarium during hurricane Andrew. The genetic markers in the the pet trade are different than the ones captured in the wild. There are also problems with Nutria and Nile monitors.

Michele October 11, 2019 - 4:18 pm

Although this happens once in awhile the reason this is a problem is because of a hurricane destroying a breeding facility. Pythons were able to adapt and breed easily in the Everglades as they have plenty of food sources.

Joe October 12, 2019 - 8:33 pm

That is only 10% of why they are out there. The infestation of these snakes and more. Along with many lizards species in south Florida can be tracked back to a hurricane that hit south Florida. That hurricane destroyed many buildings and those building have petshops in them and o do believe there was a herp show going on that was hit and caused animals to go free.

Michael Shea October 3, 2019 - 1:55 pm

Initially, they got a foothold by being released as ‘pets’ no longer wanted. This has been building slowly since about the 50s, and has gained a lot of momentum as the population of them has increased. The habitat is ideal, the food sources are abundant, after they reach a certain size they have no natural predators and the find mates through an excellent sense of smell.

Captain October 9, 2019 - 10:36 pm

The owners released them because they were going to be fined 1000.00 for having 1.

Cathy Sapp October 10, 2019 - 6:56 pm

Actually you are very wrong….this was not a problem until 1991….when Hurricane Andrew devastated the area, destroying several zoo’s in the area…..I lived in the are from 1969 to 1991.

Personal pets that get too big

Rebecca October 8, 2019 - 8:48 am

They are coming from owners who ordered them online and all the sudden could not care for them anymore so they just dumped them where they thrive and grow to be huge. It’s not like people purchase them as 20 foot predators, they purchase them as babies and dont follow through. Nobody should own a python. My gosh, let them live in the wild and have the life they need in the what we know as the circle of life. Where nature takes care of how many are on earth versus man ordering them by the thousands online.

Kimber October 8, 2019 - 4:06 pm

I couldn’t kill one

M amos October 8, 2019 - 7:56 pm

Owners let them go when get to big…breeders lose them from storm damage or poor containment. Then they breed like crazy and eat everything…..

howard meredith October 8, 2019 - 8:36 pm

no people turn them loose when they dont want them anymore and they are spreading like wild fire down there …. and some storms that came in to florida tore up places that had them and they got loose in the wild

Kristee Pruitt October 8, 2019 - 8:48 pm

Give me a try I promise you won’t regret it I will do the best I can do give my 100%

John Lockard October 8, 2019 - 11:15 pm

Some are from people releasing them MOST are from a huge snake facility getting wiped out by Hurricane Andrew. Thousands of reptiles got loose from the destruction of the facility.

Barry Wells October 9, 2019 - 1:10 am

I was born the snake charmer I grew up catching dime backs rattlers in California and milking them for their venom and I am a country boy from Pike county Mississippi whom is known for catching cotton mouth mockiesons and coriswip snakes 😁

They were in enclosures in several zoo’s that were destroyed when Hurricane Andrew devastated the east coast of South Florida in 1991.

John October 11, 2019 - 8:10 pm

Imported as pets and released when they become large.

Julie Dawn October 12, 2019 - 12:38 am

College students are known to get them and when they’re moved somewhere else they release them. Also people get them as pets and then decide they no longer want them and let them go. In my opinion they should be banned all together. They’re dangerous and people think they have a “pet” snake that loves them.
Yeah he loves ya, love to eat ya. The one and only reason a python doesn’t attack its owner is because he’s in between feedings. That’s the only reason. I know because I also had one years ago and a friend of mine was a snake expert and raised them to sell. They are NEVER tame.
They should be banned and against the law.

Rebecca Miles October 8, 2019 - 8:46 am

This has become a problem because people who paid for exotic pets like these Burmese pythons and other species just gave up on them and threw them in the FLorida Everglades. If they are no native to the area, are they relocating them or uthenizing them? I dont care what they do but their should. Be a clear plan. And communicate that to the people, American people. Not just tell fascinating stories. THere has to be some sort of mitigation plan for this invasive species???? There has to be a plan like all other regions of the country that have to deal with the Same thing.

A buddy of mine here in Texas had one about 12 feet long & kept it in his garage in a large secured area. He handled it often, but one day while on his shoulders, it coiled on his arm & pulled his arm out of socket. We were both steel fabricators(fairly robust)-and he was out of work for 6 months with torn nerves , etc. He got rid of it shortly, no idea where, but feel he didn’t kill it.

Norman Benoit October 10, 2019 - 11:29 pm

It would be interesting to know if there was a fruit (pineapples for example) or product importer down in the Homestead area that could have been the real source of the first pythons getting into that area. Pallets of bananas were the reason for the iguanas coming in (it was not from the pet trade or animals deliberately released). Any produce similarly coming in from Southeast Asia could actually be the origin, and like the green iguanas, not established from released pets at all.

When they returned after the storm the building was gone and thousands of baby snakes spread throughout.
