Record-setting 17-foot python caught in Florida Everglades

While his 132-pounder set a record for the district's hunt, Leon already held - and still holds - the all-round state record with his 2013 capture of an 18-foot, eight-inch python, officials said.

In April, Miami-Dade county launched a python elimination program that pays hunters $8.10 an hour.

Since the program's initiation in March, more than 730 pythons have been removed from the Everglades.

Leon told NBC 6 that the Burmese python's insatiable appetite is ravaging Florida's wildlife population.
