Scientists: All Florida Wildlife Threatened: Snakes Killing Everything!

In the short twelve years since state rangers first noticed them, Burmese pythons have eradicated all other animal life in the Florida everglades.  These deadly beasts will move into the human populations unless Florida makes a frontal assault to wipe them out!  Killing them individually is simply not working.

This blog cite has warned about these snakes in Florida for years.  Even then they were found in house kitchens, in swimming pools, and on country roads.  But Florida officials merely issued orders for game wardens to hunt and kill them.  First, no one knows just how many snakes inhabit these swamps.  Second, these snakes multiply at inordinate rates.  Third, they have destroyed Florida wildlife.

Thus, the state must mobilize an army against them.  In fact, because these pythons are moving both west into Texas and north into Georgia and the Carolinas, it may be necessary for the national government to organize such resistance.

The Associate Press reports:  “A large number of deadly Burmese pythons have invaded the Florida Everglades and wrecked havoc on the region’s raccoons, opossums, bobcats and other mammals.”  Scientists say that the number of declining mammal populations are “profound.”

“A study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that sightings of medium-size mammals are down dramatically — as much as 99 percent, in some cases— in areas where pythons and other large, non-native constrictor snakes are known to be lurking.”

Researchers for the National Park Service found “a drop of 99.3 percent among raccoons, 98.9 percent for opossums, 94.1 percent for white-tailed deer and 87.5 percent for bobcats.”

This snake is indicative of those who would compromise with the devil, who assume that enjoying him for a quick dance is harmless.  But like the python, the devil attacks and kills everything in his path not strong enough to resist his skills.

In the Bible, the snake, called the serpent, is the most consistent symbol for evil.  The first Book of Genesis shows Adam and Eve falling for the devil’s snake seduction:  “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life (3: 14).”

In the Book of Revelation, the snake is identified as Satan:  “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: . . . And He laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years (12: 9, 20: 2).”  At some point, people can be wholly consumed by the Snake’s spirit, and often the animals stay near that spirit.  Both must be resisted, and the physical animal must be destroyed!
