How in the hell does breeding thousands of snakes in captivity from captive stock cause 'damage' to the herp population? Sure, captive bred animals die as do all things that are living eventually. You seem to not realize that there are not very many animals taken from the wild to support the captive breeding industry these days. I don't have a single wild caught animal in my breeding colonies.

You're trying to compare animals dieing from natural causes..even though they are in captivity...to the Thousands of snakes killed at roundups that are taken from the wild and purposely killed...MURDERED.

How do you roundupers justify the torture that these animals go through before they are killed? The public spectacle? What purpose is there for a man to hold the tails of 3 Rattlesnakes in his mouth?

Also in videos from roundups I have seen other snakes in the pit other than Rattlers. Such as Copperheads.


The main fact is, is that the people who do these roundups have no care or respect for these animals. It is nothing but a slaughter of some of the most iconic North American animals.
