 Why is it illegal

i posted this in the herping forum but Ive been visiting it lately and its pretty dead, so i posted this in a few different forums to try and find an answer. i was wondering why is it illegal to catch INVASIVE species of reptiles in California, wouldn’t it be better to take them out of the wild, i mean i know its not going to make a impact taking one or two invasive species out of the wild but still wouldn’t that be better then just letting them keep multiplying. that’s what happened to the pythons in the everglades, unfortunately i pretty well know like others that were not going to eradicate the pythons their here to stay now.
I’m just wondering. thanks
i posted this in this forum cause i know Jeff knows allot about herping rules.

It is crazy and the answer is crazy too. They think if there is a hobby out there of collecting exotics, then there will be folks letting more go to support their hobby. They are affraid of starting colony’s of invasive species if it’s allowed to catch them. Crazy huh.

I know in florida and other states it is legal to catch invasive speicies and you can keep them as pets but if you catch them it is one hell of a fine if you release them back...... you either keep them as pets or call the local animal control....
