TV celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay went to Florida with his son in order to, “see how they are ruining the ecosystem.” While he was there, SWFTMD reports, they along with others hunted and killed 3 burmese pythons and cooked one of them with a portable stove. It was reported by officials that this brought the total number of pythons killed by the regional governing board up to 317. Ramsay cooked the python on site “using a portable oven.” There is no information released yet on which recipe Gordon Ramsay used. As reported in Food and Wine.
In 2013 Florida launched a contest to see who could kill the highest number of pythons. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, “Pythons can be humanely euthanized on private lands at any time with landowner permission and no permit is required. The FWC encourages people to remove pythons from private lands whenever possible.
