Commentary by Tom Crutchfield with a link to their INCREDIBLE ARTICLE:
Our industry has been under attack for the last year or so as never before due to the supposed threat to wildlife that the feral population of Burmese Pythons might pose.  In fact, a threat already exists here and has for decades that these same officials are well aware of but never mention.
The fact is that these invasives are about solely responsible for extirpating the Key Largo Wood Rat and the Cotton Mouse.  Folks it's our beloved feline, the wild feral house cat that is THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE INVASIVE ANIMAL ON THE PLANET.
