CNN post... concerning snakes...

My post to CNN...
---------------------------


I was utterly disapointed at your biased reporting on Headline News regarding the snake rescue operation.

It's a shame that people have this unnatural, unfounded 'fear' of reptiles. Herpatologists have tried educating people in hopes of going beyond this illogical fear caused by the likes of the motion picture industry, mainstream religion and other propagandists seeking to demonize a particular species and/or genus of animals.

You could have at LEAST showed more than one perspective in the report... snakes smelling like 'death'?

Why do people fear nature? Because of biased reporting, and the constant perpetuation of lies.

For reptile keepers everywhere... thanks a lot.
