The state of Florida has issued a call for python hunters. Over 2600 people from across the world have applied for this once in a lifetime job to help the South Florida Water Management District. Florida is aiming to control the infestation of the Burmese python.
According to the Miami Herald, statistically it's easier to get into Harvard than to get one of the 50 positions open for the python removal project. The infestation is so problematic that they increased the budget to one million dollars and it will help five counties, including Broward and Miami-Dade.
For $15 an hour with no health benefits, you must be 18 years old, not a convicted felon and sign a waiver of liability (WTF!?!?) in order to apply. On a serious note, it's no easy job to catch the Burmese pythons that can reach up to 17 feet in length - and you should be very serious about the job.
