PYTHON EATS 76-POUND DEER IN FLORIDA
CleanTV.com ^ | 11-11-11 | CleanTV.com

Posted on 11/11/2011 1:09:23 PM PST by geraldmcg

A gigantic python snake in Florida ate a 76-pound adult deer. The 16 foot long Burmese python was one of the largest pythons discovered to date in the sunshine state.

According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission’s exotic species coordinator Scott Hardin, if these huge snakes aren’t killed, they could migrate northward. A government sanctioned shotgun blast stopped this snake from its potential journey to Atlanta or the Carolinas.

And just how any inches around did the beast’s belly have to measure in order to covert a 76 pound Bambi into breakfast? 44 inches.

Oh, and what is the average weight of a 11-year old boy in America: 76 pounds….something to think about.

One minute, really cool video: http://www.cleantv.com/web/ProgramDetail.aspx?pid=407

They are reproducing in the everglades like crazy. Supposedly they came from a research lab destroyed in a hurricane.

>> Supposedly they came from a research lab destroyed in a hurricane.

NO! They came from the Walt Disney propagandized “no kill” do-gooder snake fanciers. Bert the snake was cool when he was a little guy eating a mouse or two a week, but when he moved into chickens and took up half the patio, it was time for a “Born Free” replay. Dumb a$$es.

Now, that havin been said, some years ago a friend saw a cobra crossing Loop Road near 40-mile bend on the Tamiami Trail. That coulda been from Bill Haas’ old Miami Serpentarium.

Oh yeah, and one other thing - the Gummn’t has spent so many years running civilians off “the Gummn’t’s land” that these things can grow unmolested. How about opening up the ‘Glades and putting a $50 bounty on these snakes and see what happens?

At $100-$200 for large snakes, it may be enough of an incentive in this economy to turn ol’ Bert into doggie chow.

The videos over at “cleantv” seem to suck. They dont show actual video of the events they talk about. Just a moontage of still photos, many of which have nothing to do with the events at hand.

"A government sanctioned shotgun blast"?

If they put a bounty on the damned things and get out of the way there are plenty of swamp running Floridans qualified to handle this, for a lot less money.

Thanks geraldmcg.

This is devastating news — the 76 pound deer was supposed to lead the big parade.

Sharky started this, blaming the women for everything, then, as per usual, slimes away, munching on tourists as he goes back to his 1% water cave near the One Who Ate a Country....

okay; I had surgery last year, two discs replaced in cervical spine just over a year ago. A third one is herniated but wasn’t severe so they left that one alone. Much much better with the pain now.

How are things with you??

no way, that is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too much computer time??????? What happened???

In support of the Welfare State, I worked 12-18 hrs a day, 6-7 days a week for months, but nothing herniated. Just the usual chronic pain with worse flare-ups than usual.... But now, after three weeks off (vacation and comp), the docs and back workers all say I’m sooooo much better. Too bad I’m dreading Monday :((

True story: I was hit by a pick up truck (it was not carrying turnips) when I was in my 20’s; never went to doctor (no blood, so, I thought nothing wrong); well....that wasn’t true, had pain all this time, but two years ago it was unbearable and finally went to docs; finally referred to neurosurgeon after nothing worked (except diladid (sp?) (like morphine) at ER).....7 months after the ER visit and all else failed, surgery time.

Sorry for you; I know you’ve been in pain all this time. yuk! Hope you don’t have a flare up....

Which, of course, is true......

:-)

128 mph, fish net stockings, topless.

What more can I say?

Cept why is it so early and why do my posts show up as being so much later on the FR timer?
