This girl posed with her pet in order to raise funds to fight the python ban via the sale of this image. Burmese Pythons are not the killers the media has made them out to be. Only 2 people have ever been killed by pet burmese pythons, and there are as many pet pythons as there are pet horses in America. In contrast horse related deaths number around 400 on average. They are only invasive in Southern Florida, and studies that say they could spread have been criticized by universities around the world. Even the American Zoological Association agrees, the interstate commerce ban on pythons is bad for America.
