Go get 'em, Snoopy!

National Geographic News is reporting that officials from Florida's Everglades National Park have enlisted the services of a dog to help them track down invasive Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus). The beagle puppy, appropriately named "Python Pete," is being trained to track the scent of the snake species, and should be out on his first official mission within the next couple of months.
