Exclamation For members in the US

We should all check this out and make an effort to do something. This can't be allowed to happen.

I keep wondering what they think is going to happen to all the reptiles in private collections across the US if they manage to put this ban into effect?
As far a salmonella goes.... I've been keeping reptiles for over 10 yrs now and have not had a problem with it yet.
Large snakes killing people? Ok, this can happen, although it is always due to a mistake on the handlers part. More people are mauled or killed by dogs each year than are killed by pet snakes.
Pet reptiles released into the wild impacting native wildlife? What about people "releasing" pet dogs and cats? This definately causes problems but no one is calling for a nationwide ban on them. Most of the reptiles we keep would not last long enough in the wild to impact anything (not that I advocate doing this)and most of us would never dream of doing this with our animals. I could go on and on but something needs to be done. I can't imagine not being able to keep reptiles.

That is bulls%$t! Maybe someone should ban dogs and cats because they over populate the countries, harm the natural wild life, and sometimes (more than herps) kill people!

They are taking everything away, brick by brick,
They are not replacing it with anything.
And one day they will get theirs. Everything will go to h#ll, and they will be the first to go.
