>>The basis for much of the on going effort to ban or restrict reptile ownership revolves around these very issues.
>>
>>And, thanks to the new regulations, negative media and excessive requirements those animals that at one time may have been considered "high end" are now considered a liability. How can one sell or place an animal when this happens? The market must be flooded. To top it all off, this just provides additional fuel for the anti-pet ownership crowd to say that we are all "idiots" because we can't take care or re-home our reptiles. This crisis, by mistake or on purpose, is manufactured and a direct result of stupid legislation.


I completely agree, and this is why it's important to keep rebutting the propaganda about "irresponsible pet owners." It
seems like in EVERY newspaper/internet article, news story, TV show or casual discussion about Burms in the Everglades that irresponsbile pet owners are mentioned as a (if not the only) cause of the feral python population. As long as this cloud is hanging over us, it will be that much easier for those pushing these laws (who, btw, don't even want responsible ownership, they want NO ownership!) to ban all "exotic" snakes/reptiles. This propaganda creates a positive snowball effect for the other side.
