Irula tribesmen chase pythons in the Everglades

Renown for their snake-hunting abilities, the Irula tribesmen of India have been hired by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to help hunt and remove Burmese pythons from various areas, including the Everglades.  Within a week, they were able to catch 13 pythons.  FWC hopes that they may be able to learn new methods and skills to enhance their own efforts in eradicating the invasive species.
