Humane Society BS
I read the mission statement of the Ottawa Humane Society...I was wondering if they had any kind of a rescue program for reptiles. I was surprised to find that they advocate banning through legislature the sale trade and importation of ALL exotic pets. They list about a dozen animals that they consider suitable "companion animals", and advocate banning everything else. The list contains only warm furry creatures.
While I'm not surprised to see a bias towards warm fuzzies, I'm pretty miffed that they think rats are fine as pets but that the government should not be allowing me to have a corn snake. Frickin' hipocrites.
