Just kidding,the woman is an overreactive nut like so many others. We've had large dogs roaming the streets as well as cats.
Either can injure a person,not to mention carry rabies and other communicable diseases..
But since they are warm and fuzzy they're going to get a break.
I have never heard of anyone being fined or jailed because their cat or dog got out. And there is no way a ban would be enacted on them....exception being a few dog breeds which have earned the dubious distinction of being killers.
Some years ago a neighbor of mine had her grand-daughter staying with her and while showing my water monitor to her the lizard took a quick nip at the child.
Yes it was irresponsible on my part,but the lizard was tame(with me)and I didn't see the harm in her touching the lizard as I held it in my grasp.
Well the old lady went nuts and started freaking out even though I assured her it was not a serious bite and no harm would come from it.
Luckily she didn't call the police or animal control,but she did call poison control because she thought the animal was venomous!
Would I be handling a venomous reptile without any gear,nuch less letting a child pet it ?!?
I'm sure she would think it a bit nutty if her pet basset hound bit me and I started freaking out about how I needed to get a rabies shot.
As long as cute and fuzzy gets "Awwws" and cool and scaly gets "Eeeks" that's the way it's gonna be.

Not to mention that cats and dogs get into the garbage, use the washroom in your front yard, carry around fleas, and bark all the time!!!
Don't get me wrong I love cats and dogs, probably just as much as reptiles, but most reptiles are harmless.
And how often do you see a snake loose anyways, I'm pretty sure nobody purposely lets them get out.....I could probably count at least 3 loose cats a day.
I think that if somebody wants to own a reptile then it's their choice, but if it gets out...it's their resposibility. I don't think banning is necessary.

Just my point of view anyways...

Where does it say she's an animal rights activist? I re-read it a fwe times and didn't see it. She's definitely not an animal rights activist,she's jsut a cat/dog fan. Activists don't choose animals, they want well for all.

Sadly enough this isn't the truth. Often the exotic reptiles that are loose have been set free by their owners, for reasons such as money, or size... or whatever else Its irresponsible people like that that help kick bylaws in to gear

Some ppl just shouldn't own exotics! That woman is nothing but a stupid bit*h and it proves how uneducated that she is about reptiles. Ppl like that are a waste of life and bump on the time line of life.

I have quoated the part of the story that says she is an animal rights activist as follows.

"It sort of slithered away and went on its business," the animal-rights activist said later. "It wasn't really interested in us but it stayed around the house."

Actually if your dogs roam free and animal control pics them up you do have to pay a fine to get them back, happened to my old boss, twice (this was in vancouver). If your dog is caught with out a license you are fined as well. Some cities are enacting bylaws against free roaming/unlicensed cats as well.

Yeah that's true around here too Lisa. (For dogs at least) I was looking at the halifax and dartmouth bylaws online and as of right now there's nothing about cats, but I know you can even get a fine or your dog taken away if he/she barks to much. (it doesn't have to be late at night either) it happend to my mom a while ago.
