In Florida fight against the python, one man holds the record

Nobody has killed more Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades than Bob Hill. Long before the state launched its new python patrol, Hill was quietly — aside from judicious employment of a 12-gauge — racking up a count of constrictor carcasses likely to stand for some time. Hill estimates he's killed at least 300 since the fateful day in 2004 when his boss called him and said, "Bobby, I've got a snake here. It's as big as my truck."
