>>"The original post said that high end animals arnt just given up my post was to show that they are."

>>The original post is about pet dumping, not about pet surrender. The title is "Released or Escaped?", doc tried to infer that because people in Florida are surrendering quality reptiles to the Florida amnesty program than people must also be releasing them.

Noooo, actually, I didn't. I believe it was the OP -- not gonna go back and look right now -- made the argument that people don't give up expensive animals. I was simply responding that yes, people DO give up expensive animals, all the time.

>>This argument then puts the blame for the establishment of these reptiles in southern Florida squarely at the feet of the responsible pet owner community.

Nope. As I have said many times -- I don't know how the burms in the Glades became established.

>>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.

Yup. Expense does not always equate with desirability to the people who own the animals.
