I think everyone is missing the point of a lawsuit. IT isn't the lawsuit ITSELF that's the worry, it's the bad publicity that it would generate. It would be in the newspapers, local, maybe even farther, because anything to do with exotic animals and someone getting hurt, lightly bitten on up to being mauled, is big news. Let PETA get ahold to the news story. All it takes is one PETA member in a small town and it's national. We as herpers get enough bad publicity as it is. Laws in the US are being passed every day banning the keeping of certain reptiles. The lawsuit? Bah, it's just a bite from a baby BP. The publicity?? That could be holy hell. Not me...............
