Read the other papers as well. Some papers claim 500 and some say 1,000 plus and you know it. Mazzotti himself in one of the links states how serious a threat the cats are. Read the link on my website to an additional paper or report on the cats. This whole stupidness started over you saying that you can't compare the Pythons to cats or something along that line. BOTTOM LINE IS PYTHONS ARE ALWAYS QUOTED AS HAVING EATEN ONE RAT WHILE THE CATS MUNCH AWAY AND THE PUBLIC HEARS NOTHING ABOUT IT EVER. THAT WAS MY POINT THEN AND NOW. I know it's a straw man argument analogy or whatever else you decide to dream about. Do NOT many of the papers, articles, etc estimate the population at 1,000 or more? There also is a HUGE amount of contradictory info about what has been done, what is being done, or if anything is being done. Even the amount of money paid for the cat's health varies depending on the article, paper, etc from about $75,000-$100,000 per year. Which one of these articles, papers, etc is true? I don't know but I do know that the one snake eating the one rat is always publicized as the bad python destoying the endangered Wood Rat and the cat's are never mentioned. Is this a true or a false statement?
