The Snake Hunter

Python Pete, the beagle being trained to hunt burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus) in the Florida Everglades, is the star of this funny audio piece from NPR's All Things Considered. Here's hoping Pete makes it through training and become a full-fledged snake hunter. Interested readers may also want to check out this other ISW post about Python Pete.

Thanks to Val C. for sending in the link.
