The Florida Wildlife Commission is very determined to get rid of pythons. After asking professionals, they're going straight to the average Joe for help catching the potentially deadly creatures.
The FWC has launched the "Python Pickup Program" which offers incentives to people who catch one of the serpents in the wild. Aside from a free t-shirt, amateur snake wranglers will be entered to win a variety of prizes...including a $100 gas gift card.
This isn't the first time the FWC has tried a program like this. The main difference between "Python Challenge" roundups held in 2013 and 2016? This time you're not required to get any training before attempting to grab a snake.
