Beavers are a tasty treat…

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on “New threat to our way of life.” No, not gay marriage — Pythons.

At 20 miles a month, a determined Burmese python from Florida could arrive in San Francisco as early as August 2020.

“It would be exceptional for one animal to be that unidirectional in its movement, but it’s mathematically possible,” Rodda said.

The snake’s cross-country crawl would be made easier by the large population of beavers along the way, Rodda said.

“Beavers would be a very tasty treat for them,” Rodda said. “No beaver would be safe from a python.”

Hat tip to Antitrust Review, which called this “undoubtedly the greatest four paragraphs to ever appear in a newspaper.” No argument here.
