Mike, what would they do without you? You are the guy to get in here and you are the one who seems to represent where we are coming from, that is the hobby keepers out here who are going to be slammed by the proposed legislation. You know the feeling of having your personal responsibility taken away and legislated with an uncompromising firm hand. You are truly caught in the middle, but I think we all appreciate you being here for us, otherwise we would have no info at all from these guys.
Mike, it seems to me that if every python dies within the next month or so from the cold winter, the legislation will still be pushed even harder in some attempt to take advantage of the kill to drive the stake into this perceived “problem”. Do you see the shift from the possibility of pythons extending their range and more emphasis on future prevention by passing the legislation anyway? How much of the political wrangling behind the scenes filters down to you and the guys on the front line who are suppose to be just scientists gathering data?
