Steven, I am not throwing a rock at you. Guess it sorta has been bugging me about comments people make with regard to what we do. I thought it was about time that an attempt be made to get people to realize when they are throwing a rock at someone, they ought to look within themselves and see if they are in any way or at any level conducting themselves as those they are chunking rocks at. I am not ashamed of the association I have had for the last 30 years with the Sweetwater Jaycees. I have personally seen how their program has worked and what happens to the animals that are turned into the round-up. The process is as legal as people conducting deer, pig, antelope, elk, aoudad, quail, pheasant and other animal hunts, or the fishing tournaments. I see and have participated in many of the Herp Sales Shows from Daytona to LA. The sad thing about it is that no on seems to be concerned about the thousands of herps that are sold to people that have no clue how to provide husbandry to the animals they buy, most of which will end up in the dumpster. They will be back to the next show to try again. But, noooooo, say something about that and every breeder or importer would be up in arms. Like I said, pretty much every part of the rattlesnakes are used, not put in the dumpster.
