They eat the snakes, they use the hides, as far as I know nothing is wasted except the guts, maybe. Now how is this different from Alligators? Cows? Deer? Fish? Shrimp? These animals are all killed for the benefit of humans. How was dinner last night? Yummy. And all the Ball Pythons in captivity, well to get where we are today MILLIONS of baby balls were harvested from the wild. So that's over and done now, that's not justification, it's fact that it happened.

I'm gonna tell you that after my experience with Legislators and TP&W, I learned at least two things over the course of three legislative sessions;

1) If it doesn't make TP&W $$$, then TP&W does not care about it. Period.
2) Had a lot of HUMANS not been LOSING $$$, the Legislators would not have care enough about us to pass HB 1788.

$$$ is the only thing that is going to save our ass. $$$ is what the entire argument against USFW is based on.

IMO, you boys better get over your aversion to making money, and start making it, and a bunch of it on your hobby. It's going to cost more and more to do this, and more and more to PROTECT our privilege to do it. Prior to my legislative experience I would have never said this, now I'm going to hang my hat on it.

As far as Eric's hypocrite argument, it's very easy to see where he is coming from. Everyone here is guilty, it's just a matter of how guilty are you. Lots of animals have perished so I can enjoy my life watching TV, A/C, Trucks, Gasoline, Telephone, etc.

LOCALITY: Traceable lineage to WC snakes from the same locality.
I don't care how far apart they are (within reason) as long as the localities are stated, buyers can make up their own minds.

NON-LOCAL or GENERIC: Lineage is not traceable to WC
Generics need love too.
