such a caustic issue, I would simply boycott voiders and try to educate as many as I could about how WRONG it is. As long as people are willing to pay for voids, the bleeps will continue to provide them...and the sponsors will continue to sell tables to the providers. Its not about the love of the animal anymore its about $$$$ for a portion of the demographic that is involved in this field nowadays.
Empty tables=lost sales/profits and there are more than enough dolts out there to justify letting a void artist set up his wares at a show. Even defanged snakes draw attention, even more so when some idiot is free handling it, and that draws crowds.
My solution is I dont go to shows that allow voids and I dont support people or businesses that promote the practice, but of course Im only one guy.
