You AGAIN do not even realize what you are saying. Before you start posting crap you should be sure that you understand your own position in your mind. I don't want to speak for anyone else, but it is not NECESSARILY the slaughter that we are up in arms about. While I don't agree with the slaughter, I don't necessarily have a problem with the snakes being killed or made into hat bands or eaten (I've eaten several varieties of snakes myself). What I think most people's problem is is that you are taking WILD animals and slaughtering them! Ever heard of the passenger pigeon? American bison? American alligator? You are trying to compare WILD slaughter to perceived CAPTIVE born and produced slaughter. NOT THE SAME THING!! The statement has been made before - if you want to slaughter the snakes and be able to defend it rationally, breed them yourself and slaughter your own offspring.
