>>You canít even agree that cooling the snake is more humane, can you?

More humane than what? Than pithing? No, it isn't more humane than pithing. Than chopping the head off? Maybe, I suppose in part depending on how the cooling is done.

>>OTOH,
>>You obviously want to tow the line with your PETA connection, so go ahead and advocate whatever they do.

What's wrong with pithing? Rather than just jerking your knee and assuming it must be bad because PETA recommended it, take a moment to actually think about it. What's wrong with it?

>>If the animal skin dealer doesnít have a freezer or refrigerator big enough to put a snake in a bag for twenty minutes first, then I guess they should dump it on the floor, chop itís head off with an axe and pith the brain or squash it with the axe handle. Whatever PETA says, right?

One more time -- PETA never advocated chopping the head off. Please try to stick with what they actually did say.

I'll ask you again -- what's wrong with pithing?
