Though rare, natural selection is favoring the Blonde allele, and every single take of an adult kicks the effects of selection in the throat.

This is just the way I see it, but ol' Nature doesn't care whether the removal from the population is by herper (live collection) or vehicle (run over).

Returning to herpers the opportunity to collect an animal ALIVE and make more LIVE animals of the same genetic stock SEEMS to make more sense to me, than to say "hands off" and hear from non-herping folks about the strange yellow snake they ran over last night on their way home from the bar.
