Happy python hunting in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, FL Officials want hunters to get as many of the pythons as they can. The special hunting season lasts until mid April. State wildlife experts are even holding workshops for inexperienced snake hunters.

Pythons aren't native to the area. Most are either escaped pets, or were released intentionally. Officials worry the snakes are upsetting the natural balance of the region.
