Well family taking a tour of the Florida Everglades got front row seats.
Wrestling match I'll get that I'm scared man and a python.
Tour guides Tommy L one and warn -- we're taking some -- out when they came across these ten fort snake.
And didn't think twice and jumping into the water to kill it.
Joining us are raises interest for operators Tommy Owen and Warren -- been nice to see both -- this morning welcome.
Hey welcome to morning and you're just reading over your information you can you say that this is kind of like just common practice -- this is like.
It's like just getting out of bed in the morning looking for a bagel you see a python he was jumping in effect that -- Well yeah we we I just -- I -- I grew up and that area song and I've seen at all.
You know from big alligators pigs snakes big mammals and it's just.
Kind of desensitized.
To that you know it's no big deal it's it's it's.
It's Hollywood you know but just in real life at that point so now I have this week barely more -- -- -- times to be scared in the first place that a mistake was getting away at that point so I ask.
-- the second I'm sorry I got got got a call you not want.
You didn't you jumped out of a boat onto the back of a ten foot python I mean at some point you made a conscious decision is promising to risk your life I mean these.
That connect can bring you wonder pretty easily now why did she do this.
Where we do our tours out of we have -- snakes also so we -- to handle and often.
It's not a first time -- but.
But I mean is not I jumped out just as soon as solid just you know raw data got a rage and just you know had to had to attack the snake.
I mean we mean -- that you know I was actually the family that spotted it first and we let him know hey.
This is excited we -- get this out is this okay like they you know and so they knew what was going on line just immediately -- on a boat you know and if I would have done that the -- would have been afraid would have gone away.
I had to be very quiet when I mean when I was ambushing and stocking that sneakers he wouldn't he was -- -- taken off they're very they're very fast.
But I just I have a lot attacked like that but why didn't you guys do I would have done and that is just ignore it.
-- you you don't live down here this is our home and the fact is the the Burmese python is eating our native species.
Are wading birds or mammals and people come down here too to see those things and so it's not only you know that there's the stakes are disrupting our our the balance our ecosystem you're -- are ravaging our -- eating our wading birds.
-- and and and so that's our ecology that is disrupting but it's also our economy.
You know down here are our ecology is also of you know a big part of our economy.
So this is you know it was just all those it was just wasn't trying to you know kill a snake.
If that's not that's not how I.
How I operate it was the fact that it was disrupting -- you know the environment on a part of.
I got to ask you what was that to mean the tour group then got their their their money's worth.
Awesome experience I normally don't watch a Nazi and a whale and your money back here hopefully a lot of life and after hearing John -- -- you have what was there.
Violence in the boat.
What -- -- as on the video they're like wow yeah they just at first they thought it was part of the show.
You know part of the tour you know like I like that happens all the time and it's not it was a it was a one in a million chance.
And it was just an -- like this and we let -- know what was going only one I've -- -- they felt uncomfortable and and if I was alone or if you were alone we -- done and we would have we would have you know.
Called up the proper authorities and Leno hey we -- -- -- But you just you don't take on something like that it must get back up or are -- how do you that still how do you killer how did you kill this ten foot putt well that those two particular Burmese python on the -- the right way to humane way you wanna you wanna cut the head off.
As clean in and as quickly as you can.
And damage the brain because you sometimes the the body can still be -- -- if you -- as the brains and you know that there is no harm.
You know there's no more pain you know it's as -- in -- is suffering but you that you really want to -- that that's why the wrestling in the jujitsu really came in handy because.
I could just gradually.
It and hand -- and there's a Warren say here they'll make the cut because it you know he's flailing all over the place you know I would have begun cutters something so.
I had to make sure the snake was subdued before we can be then you know I tell -- something like that so you know there was some wrestling and that kind of first.
-- where things come from I mean who -- so we don't live down there so we don't know I mean it that.
Good to know they -- southeast Asia yet how they get their people bring them as pets in the SE and that's what happened.
Yeah there's mostly it's you're responsible pet ownership they get too large took him to order -- and people sort of killing number turning them -- zoo or something like that of -- release some into the wild.
Mean they do breed here that on every natural enemies so.
The population really source.
-- now you don't watch you guys make short order of this snake reminds me of a kid's birthday party like myself but if I were they.
Make a balloon would have a stake and the equipment type -- -- -- it like a full.
The globe are like hot dogs a lot lot of yeah and -- snake was doing that to me he was Germany and all sorts of shapes yeah.
How well he didn't know is ten feet long when you -- -- -- it's amazing that you and I did it.
