Inside Edition is stalking snakes with a man who was hired by the state of Florida to hunt pythons. The state’s python epidemic began in 1992 when Hurricane Andrew destroyed a reptile zoo and 900 pythons escaped. The pythons have been destroying the fragile Florida Everglades ever since. Mike Kimmel told Inside Edition that he grabs them and holds them in a case in his truck. What he does, he said, is “not cruel. … We go about a specific way. This snake does not suffer. I love wildlife.”
