if humanely eutahnizing an animal is the best, most humane option, then i dont disagree with it. but it doesnt cost a thousand dollars to take an animal to a vet and have it euthanized. i know, i have had to do it.

but sticking an animal in a freezer to die has been proven to be painful and unethical.

im not suggesting you starve for a week, but then again, i am pretty sure that your parents buy groceries, not you.

if you have a wild caught snake in YOUR care, and it becomes ill and needs treatment, it is YOUR responsibility to do so. you cant just catch animals, deplete their health and then let them loose again to infect the wild population. THAT is the reason why there are so many laws prohibiting true herpers to collect wild caught specimens.

im just trying to point out things to consider when bringing an animal into your care. there are FAR too many animals in rescues because of improper care.

you can be arrested and put in prison for failing to provide medical attention for animals in most states.

im not trying to attack you, i just think it is ignorant to deny a living creature medical attention because of its "value."
