Python Hunt!

Guess what? Florida is holding a python competition! Reckless snake owners tend to let these reptiles go in our Everglades when they get too big. Now our small wildlife seems to be disappearing. Even other regional snakes and small gators. Estimates are that they have wiped out more than 90 percent of our mammals in the Everglades.

According to the experts and hunters, pythons are expert at camouflage.

The hunt began January 12 and ends February 10th. There is a $1,000 reward to the hunter who bags the most reptiles. (There are rules, of course and you have to sign up.)

Okay, who's with me? Bwuaaahaaa. NOT!!!

"A common sense person lives good sense; fools litter the country with silliness." Proverbs 13:16 (MS)

Lord, help me pick up my physical, spiritual and emotional litter. May I not be a reckless owner of the gifts that You've given me for living.

All for a good cause! But rather them than me.
