For starters, 76 pounds is not an adult deer unless it is a Key deer. I don't think there are too many Key deer in the 'Glades.
Second, pythons are more than an invasive species in the Everglades. Their population has exploded down there and it will only get worse as the Everglades are the perfect breeding environment for them and they have no natural predators there.
Third pythons get much bigger than 16 feet. I remember a 23 footer being pulled from under a s Florida home. Scientists believe it is quite probable that there are already "super snakes" in the 'Glades.
These snakes are getting closer and closer to residential areas and even going into neighborhoods to eat pets.
Children play there...
I think they should kill every python they see. The iguana and tilapia infestations are just a hint of what the python problem will become.
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
