"Everglades National Park spokeswoman Linda Friar told CBS that the snake was eventually humanely euthanized."
Where's the media outrage over the "murder" of this poor snake???
If this snake had been named "Sir Hiss" and had a collar...then there would be outrage!!!
That beast would make a nice belt...for Oprah.
Laughin at myself, because I'm hilarious...:)
Ghost, now that is funny right there LOL.
I love herps ! if allowed in the record books it would fetch at least 50.k
The comment about Oprah was uncalled for Ghost...especially considering how she was just arrested for drug possession...apparently they found 200# of crack in her underwear..:)
As for the snake, can't say as its demise saddens me in the least bit; I hate snakes.
"Humanely euthanized" ..... that means a hatchet to the head/DECAPITATION !....aw, the poor critter...this should be front page news....where's the wreathes and the snake condolence cards.....
Snakes are not cuddly so there fore the lies don't mind if they are killed. In addition, they said they humanely put it down. All I know is that I have a couple a recurves would look great with Python skins on item.
if that snake got a hold of you it could easily choke you out
It has to have fur to be a treasured existence.
I agree Bake. What makes a lions life any more important than this pythons? Im sure a zoo somewhere would have taken it. I happen to like snakes probably cuz everyone hates them.
What do you feed an 18 foot python in a zoo?

unnamed lion cubs
Evidently the range of big snakes are expanding. ;)

Just saying, pythons are an exotic species in the everglades and one they are trying to eradicate. The "humanely euthanized" comment is rediculous. Shot in the head at a distance would have been far more humane than messing with it and stressing it out until they humanely euthanized it.
