Florida brings in Indians to remove snakes

Florida has a well-known problem with Burmese pythons that now roam wild in the Everglades. Wildlife officials have tried all kinds of different methods of removal, incluing a bounty and a well-publicised public hunt. Now they have recruited tribesmen from India to hunt the snakes.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission believe Irula tribesmen, in Tamil Nadu, southern India, which are well-known for their snake-catching skills, will be able to remove the slithery menace.
