Bottom line - is this really any less humane than picking up stray puppies or kitties and euthanizing (suffocating slowly)them and thorwing them in the land fill? Or is it any less humane than how industries kill the beef, pork, chickens, fish, or seafoods that you eat? There are groups of people out there that do not want you to eat meat or wear leather clothing. It still happens. The snakes are used the same ways that the other animals are used. One might go on to say it is inhumane for you to keep a snake or other Herp in a cage for it's whole life, all the while tormenting it by handling it and allowing it to peer out of it's cage at freedom and never being allowed to escape. Where do YOU really want to draw the line?
