the 2 rallying points behind the ban on large constrictors that the politicians have used has been the treat to the environment and the threat to public safety. Bill Nelson and other politicians have specifically mentioned the incident of the child that was supposedly killed in Lady Lake Fl.. My point was that as far as Fl. is concerned there have been more deaths involving dogs in the last 2 MONTHS not to mention 4 serious dog attacks that I am aware of.
I am not anti dog as I have said in other posts. I have not stood up and publicly declared that large snakes were a serious problem they did. From the numbers I see 1 death in one year vs. 3 in 2 months shows that there is a more serious problem and based on that logic they should pursue problem instead. According to Amazon there has been 8 deaths related to large Boids since 1990 in the U.S.. I wonder how many more there have been since 1986, because I can think of 14 deaths in that time period that are related to Mr. Nelson's space program so perhaps we should ban that as well based on such logic. Apparently strapping a giant bottle to your butt is much more dangerous than keeping a pet snake that might mistake you for a rabbit one day.
Personally I think worrying about any of it is not what our politicians should be doing. They should be more concerned with Unemployment, the foreclosure crisis which is related to that high unemployment. Those two wars we got ourselves into that we can't seem to get out of and the ramifications of what their stupid healthcare experiment and cap and trade are going to do to our economy which is in serious trouble.
It's to bad the cold snap wiped out so many of those burms as they could be a useful food source when things get worse then they are now. We could have Snake ala Nelson. I'll bet it tastes something like Hoover Hogs.
