Florida's 'Crocodile Dundee' turned a firefighting career into a passion for pythons

Bill Booth is about as close as you can get to Florida's version of Crocodile Dundee. He's always combing the Everglades for cold-blood quarries like alligators and pythons. "It's fun to come out here and make money doing what you love to do," Booth, 54, said. "I love (to) get out here and wrestle with snakes and alligators. And to get paid for it is a bonus."
