    It looks just like an experiment somebody is doing a nice little experiment
    and the results of which would be published in some magazine

    Guam's area is not that big and US bases are spread over 30 % of the area

    Guam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Guam also has a sizable population

    So killing the snakes by hand cannot be that difficult

    The snake species they re talking about is an invasive species (not native to Guam) brought to Guam probably by US armed forces. Now they have multiplied vigorously and have preyed on several native species driving some species to near extinction.
