If You Kill a Huge Exotic Snake ....

Veritas Libertas by Edward Wimberley

So a group of forest workers in the Picayune Strand find this huge 15 foot python, they risk their lives to capture it - one grabbing the tail and the other grabbing the snake just behind the head - they pull the snake out of a canal to the bank and kill it with the only weapon at their disposal (a rake) and their boss is critical of them because the way they killed the snake was "inhumane"? Am I hearing this correctly? Is this guy serious?

Sometimes I think the whole world has gone insane when an act of courage and necessity is transformed into a crime. For my money these guys deserve medals and not criticism.
