An estimated 150,000 Burmese pythons now occupy South Florida. Lieutenant Scott Mullin of the Miami Dade Fire Rescue squad known as “Venom One” and Animal Planet’s Swamp Wars joined Your Wake Up Call to talk about the problem and how it got so bad in the first place. He also talks about how Venom One acts as a global authority in capturing venomous snakes and other dangerous creatures as well as providing life-saving treatment for such bites.
You can see Lt. Mullin and his dangerous encounters with snakes and other venomous creatures on Swamp Wars, which you can catch on Animal Planet Feb 9-13 at 3 p.m.
Your Wake Up Call airs every weekday from 6-9 a.m. on AM 820 News in Tampa and 1190 News in Orlando.
