Florida recruits python trackers

The state of Florida wants help tracking down and euthanizing the thousands of giant pythons in the wild that are threatening native species.

We dare you to be able to look away as python tracker Greg Graziani demonstrates his technique on the scaly friend he brought with him to the interview.

    DO WHAT???
    Did she say 100,000 animals? The entire country, especially the thousands of reptile lovers nation-wide would like to know where the sensational number of "giant" animals came from? Who did the study? The state? 100,000? Come on! America, if you believe this traditional and now very common place irresponsible reporting then we deserve all the problems that we face today. What state agency performed this study? How many people were involved and what were the metrics used to determine the final number? This is an absolute joke. We have this example of a family that obviously had no business keeping an exotic animal that traditionally is very docile and tragedy occurred. A terrible tragedy. But the facts that Ball python Greg Graziani was supporting is an obvious dance with the state so he an keep his business going. If you want to report facts give us the names and groups that conducted these population samples and let other folks in the know hear the real truth....this whole segment was just another part of the fear mongering going on nation-wide. CNN should be ashamed......
