Mike Kimmel aka The “Python Cowboy” is a Licensed Wildlife Trapper of Invasive and Dangerous Species as well as a State Contracted Python Hunter. Mike is one of a handful of people brave and intelligent enough to comb the Florida Everglades for these destructive creatures and remove them. Mike says and the facts show our Everglades have been taken over by the nonindigenous Burmese Python decimating our natural wildlife. He understand the meaning of true conservation and lets his highly dangerous and arduous work speak for itself. Join me as I talk with Mike about horrific impact of this invasion and the critical importance of his work. Mike is a special kind of Modern Cowboy…he is The “Python Cowboy”.
