People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is up in arms over a Florida snake-hunting contest, according to WFSU.
The Sunshine State is preparing for a snake-hunting contest in the Everglades beginning on Saturday. While PETA is demanding a decapitation ban, WFSU notes that decapitation is one of three lethal methods that Florida has approved in the Python Challenge. The snake-hunting contest is reportedly attracting snake hunters from far and wide to help the Sunshine State rid itself of an infestation of non-native Burmese pythons.
