When snakes invade, call the wranglers - South Florida - MiamiHerald.com
They euthanize all of those snakes? ugh!
Is it possibly to spay/neuter snakes at all? Because then these guys could be adopted back out as pets, or rehabbed, and if it can't breed, that at least reduces the worry if the next owner releases it, or if it escapes.
There's too many of them for that to be practical! And the expense would be enormous. Rescues are running over with big snakes as it is. Not that many people have the room or the ability to care for them.
Thats how a lot of them got out there in the first place.
Very much true - at least they are getting euthanized, and not slaughtered in some other inhumane way. I should be grateful for that small blessing. I'd be willing to adopt one, once I have to space for it (a long term plan to be sure - the snake would be getting it's own room, customized to be escape proof. Think very tight fitting doors, welded vents and drains, etc.) But I am just one, and the snakes are many.
I just hate to think of animals dying because of a result of human mistakes.
There has to be a logical solution to all of this somewhere.
