(NBC) -

If you want to be paid to slay pythons, you may want to head to South Florida.

The Water Management District approved a proposal to hire hunters. They will be paid by the hour plus a bonus for every snake killed.

This in an effort to control the population.

$175,000 has been set aside for this two month pilot project. Hunters will only be in the Miami-Dade County.
