This may come as offensive to many people, but i just got a reply from a reply form one of the councillors in BC. I replied to him saying:
'I agree, people who don't know how to care for these animals should not be able to purchase them. Why though must we all get punished for the select few who give us a bad name. I say give PET STORES regulations and size limits on animals they are allowed to sell and leave the breeders alone. On this topic, there are certain individuals who's source of income is revolved around breeding reptiles, do you guys every think of things like this?'
Our target is the pet stores. Personally, I've not thought of breeders as I've never considered breeding reptiles a full time occupation. Marvin Hunt
I don't know, that could be seen as offensive or not I cannot tell the tone in what he was saying.
