Python patrols stalk Florida swamps to staunch marauding serpents

Along with the venomous lionfish, the Burmese python is perhaps the least welcome invasive species in Florida: lacking any natural predators, it has happily chomped its way through the state’s wildlife. And that is why people like Tom Rahill and Anne Gordon Vega spend their nights stalking through the Everglades trying to kill the snakes.

Rights group comments on jailing of journalists in Myanmar

Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director, Phil Robertson, considers the verdict jailing two Reuters journalists for seven years in Myanmar is “clearly intended to intimidate other Burmese journalists”. They were accused of breaching Myanmar’s state secrets law while reporting on a massacre of Rohingya Muslims in a case that fuelled international outrage a week after the army was accused of genocide.

Florida Python Hunters Celebrate 1,000th Capture

Burmese pythons have been devastating local wildlife in the Everglades, so Florida has been paying a select group of hunters to catch and kill the invasive snakes. On Tuesday, the 1,000th python was brought in, measuring over 11 feet long. (May 22)
