144 pound Python snake captured

The men were working on behalf of the South Florida Water Management District, which created a pilot python elimination program to help protect the Everglades and eliminate invasive pythons from public lands.

“The  Governing Board has approved a pilot monetary compensation program that  will incentivize a limited number of public-spirited individuals to  kill pythons,” the organization explained on its website. “The program  will give participants unprecedented access to SFWMD lands in an effort  to remove these destructive snakes, which have become an apex predator in the Everglades.”
