The hunt is growing in Florida for the invasive Burmese Python.

The state is announcing it’s expanding the elimination program with more money and more hunters.

The state initially struggled to figure out how to tackle this problem.

It went from sporadic trophy hunts to professionals in the Everglades year-round.
