The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

MI­AMI — Celebrity chef Gor­don Ram­say cooked up a unique dish while film­ing in Florida: Burmese python. Ram­say joined Kyle Pen­nis­ton of Mi­ami on July 15 to hunt in­va­sive pythons in the Ever­glades for an up­com­ing episode of his com­pet­i­tive cook­ing tele­vi­sion va­ri­ety show “The F Word with Gor­don Ram­say.’’

Pen­nis­ton hunts pythons for the South Florida Wa­ter Man­age­ment Dis­trict, the state agency that over­sees Ever­glades restora­tion. Re­searchers say pythons are dec­i­mat­ing pop­u­la­tions of na­tive mam­mals that live in the vast wet­lands.

Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment Tues­day from the dis­trict, Ram­say and his son, Jack, helped Pen­nis­ton kill three pythons in west­ern Mi­ami-Dade County.
