(Photos) Hunter killed a long Python snake; Snake activist bicker over action


According to Gabriel Totoma on Facebook: 

A hunter in my area killed and brought home this huge snake. It made a nice pepper soup for many of us. See the the neighbours having a closer look at it.



Meanwhile:, in contrast to the hunter’s move,  another Facebook user reacts:

If you don’t bug them, they generally won’t bug you and they’ll take huge pains to avoid you even seeing them if they can. They’re not the most dangerous predator on the block – WE are. Far more snakes are killed by humans than the other way around.
They sense you coming from your footsteps and hightail it before you even catch sight of them,
For any ecosystem to function there needs to be a flow of energy. Without it, nothing, not even humans, would survive.
