this procedure is never done by a licensed vet, if you can prove me wrong, please feel free. Although, there has been a time in the past where I have heard of it being done, BEFORE ethics became an issue.
B) People seem to think that spaying and neutering is a good defense for people to keep venomoids. However, spaying and neutering are done to prevent certain diseases, not just for keeping the populations down, nice try though. If you can find a reason that removing the glands of a venomous snake is helpful to that animal, once again, please feel free.
C). People have plastic surgery, yes they do, and they do because people have that right to make a decision to have their bodies altered, the snake doesn't. When was the last time you spoke with a snake that said it wanted it's venom glands ripped out?
It's amazing how many pro-venomoiders have the same logic, all of which seems to have absolutely no thought behind it.
For once I would like to see a venomoider have the b@lls to say, I have a venomoid cobra because it's cool to show off and I like to play with it. Or, I sell venomoids because it is an easy way to make money off of ignorant and lazy people, without having to get a real job and be a normal part of society. I would also like to find one venomoid dealer who can actually prove that he has a licensed vet doing the surgery for him.
