PETA on Florida pythons: Don't just beat them to death

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the snakes also should be beheaded by hunters authorized by Florida to kill the massive creatures. Cutting off the snake's head or otherwise severing its spinal cord is more humane than simply smashing its skull, the method approved for reptiles by the American Veterinary Medical Association, PETA said.
