Is this the same state that not even 2 years ago "removed" critically endangered crocodilians from an ideal environment to place them in a worst case scenario?
Charged one of the foremost experts in the world on croc husbandry and croc vet care with animal abuse.
Then promptly killed maimed or injured half the animals they took in.
The same state flew in gators from out of state to be treated by a vet that has half the croc knowledge of Terry Cullen.
Shame on WI herpers who have'nt fought tooth and nail for Terry.
Not only an American treasure for the herp community but a WI treasure.
I appreciate people spending the time and effort to save any croc but I'm having a little trouble getting past the irony of putting Chinese Alligators, Philipine crocs, Black Caimen, Broad Souted Caimen, Acutus, Cataphractus etc etc in the hands of DOG CATCHERS and letting perfectly healthy animals perish.
NO EXCUSE for it.
A black eye for MPD, MADAC, and frankly all citizens of WI.
If your a croc guy, like me, you have nothing but disgust and disdain for the state of WI. D.C.
