Florida Python Invasion

Open Hunting Permits
Open hunting permits promises great decreases in the python community. It is a one million initial cost, and a 500,000 maintenance fee, but it promises a great difference in the everglades. It has minimal effects on other species, and would only require 15 rangers and 2 full time public relations to begin the effort. There is minimal impact on other species, and we will have safety procedures in place during the spring to decrease the number of python attacks, since they are most active at that time. We could organize a hunting challenge, to encourage quick results.
Pythons have invaded the Everglades, and they are a danger to our ecosystem. These pythons have become the apex predator, killing out other species. Where pythons have been living, marsh rabbits and foxes cannot be found. We know this is the right choice, since other ways to get rid of the snakes are too dangerous, expensive, and sometimes don't even affect their population. We hope our new procedures, open hunting permits and egg hunts, will return our ecosystem to its long needed, natural state.
Pythons are harming the ecosystem. These snakes have been shipped in from Asia from exotic breeders, who eventually leave them to the wild when they become too difficult to care for. These snakes have become the apex predator in the Everglades, beating out the native alligator. They are shifting the ecoystem and causing some species population to decline, such as the alligator. Our team of investigators have come up with a new process to eradicate this invasive species.

Our python hunt would be similar to this.
