She actually knows what she's doing. I got bit by a red-tail boa once while doing a presentation for a museum. You don't panic, and you get the snake to release it's bite. Notice, once they got his mouth freed he did not try to bite again. Pythons are much bigger than boas, and people who have no business owning them buy them when they're small, then something like this happens and they let the snake go. Pythons are now a huge pest in the Everglades of Florida where they are a rapidly reproducing invasive species eating virtually every other animal and have no natural predators.

Yes ..... and I think there is something like a $200 bounty on them.  There are or were several TV shows about bounty hunters in the Everglades.

That snake would have never made it inside past my front door.
Nope those are the snakes that will become,as Fig says, an "endangered species"

It's too easy to get confused by the various words being thrown around.

A quick review, to help keep us focused:

BOA  hunters

BOW hunters

TAB Hunters

Tabs

And remember!

TABS TABS is STAB BATS spelled inside out!

Here ya go:

And, of course, Florida's Department of Fish & Game confiscated her feather boa, because the LAW said they HAD to.

Columbo, the gem of Kenosha!
But is that Shel Silverstein next to him?
Looks like Alan Arkin to me.

Wonder whose HEAD Columbo has in his purse!

I vaguely remember enjoying that. Shall have to look it up for another viewing.
Thanks for the clarification.

Peter Falk was not actually FROM Kenosha, Wisconsin.
But COLUMBO is an Italian name, and there were, probably still are, a considerable bunch of them in that town.

Internet says
-----------------------
About 12 percent of Kenosha residents are Italian, according to the 2000 census, which is the highest concentration of any Wisconsin city
--------------------------
So, if you care to whip out your calculator, figure 12% of 100,164, and there's a good approximation.

I thought he was from Athol, Massachusetts. I keep hearing about Falk in Athol.
