Also, an intentional release in order to establish a sustainable population is very different than a pet owner who releases one because he is overwhelmed. "Bucket biology" has been as issue in other parts of the country with other animals and it is very difficult to defend against. They know they are breaking the law so additional laws will not stop them.

Providing education, alternatives and resources to pet owners is not that difficult. Many states already have associations that conduct out reach and rescues, all done without government intervention.

Passing additional laws will do little to those who do not follow them in the first place, those of use who are responsible owners and breeders will comply, but we were never the problem in the first place. The powers to be that are pushing the ban know that as well, so do not believe for a minute that the national python ban has anything to do with little Johnny buying a baby python.
