Dude, You seem to miss the whole point of the initial start of this discussion. It was about people being hypocritical about the killing of Herps or any animal for that matter. The bottom line is the process and in the end there is a dead Herp or other animal. The hypocricy is that it seems to be ok depending on your point of view how the end result is achieved (dead animals). It should not matter where the animal came from (wild or captive). You appear to think that if you produce the animal it is ok to do what you want to with it. For instance if you sell it to someone and it dies, it is not your responsibility. WRONG, if it were not for you breeding the animal and selling it, the animal would not die. Get the point??? I also find it very very hard to believe that the ONLY reason people breed animals for sale is because of the love for the animal (maybe true for beef and chicken). It is for the $$$$$. May not have started out that way but, that is where it ends up - right?

Trust me, I did not want this discussion to turn into a huge PI$$ING contest. I am not trying to convince right or wrong. This has brought up points that a lot of people have either taken for granted or were misconceptions.

Bottom line is that until laws are changed you will do what you do and the towns that run round-ups in whatever state will run them. Maybe until the laws change it would be better if we did not criticize lest the finger gets pointed the wrong way. IMHO
