Florida Python Hunt: Only 11 Snared So Far

Florida wildlife officials say just 11 Burmese pythons were killed during the first three days of a public hunt for the invasive species in the Everglades.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said more than 1,000 people from more than 30 states registered to compete in the month-long Python Challenge.

The snakes killed since the competition began Saturday will be processed by the University of Florida.
