Big V - very sure, Paul from the Reptile Store and I have discussed it before. Pet stores, legal rescues, circus', etc. are exempt from the law. As was once pointed out to me, there is a small loophole in Hamiltons by-law........one of the other "things" that are considered exempt is worded in the by-law as a "menagerie" but they fail to give a legal definition of what that is exactly.
In Hamilton, its legal for a pet store to sell you a reptile, just illegal for you to own it..............
Makes no sense but..........as I said, if animal control ever comes my way, all my animals will be housed at my store in no time...
That's as odd as surrey's law, where you can own but can not sell, buy, trade or otherwise aquire a reptile with in city limits.
