Not just because they got too big, they were outlawed when one snake of an irresponsible owner killed a toddler. People had no choice but to release them, or turn them in so they could be destroyed.most are burmese pythons that were once pets and when they got too big for their owners to care for, they were released into the wild.
Snakes aren't the only non-native species "wreaking havoc" on our oh-so-fragile ecosystem.
I thought America was supposed to welcome all walks of life from everywhere in the world?
Does this mean we'll be able to "cull" illegal immigrants next?
