This is not unusual. Barrie's law has been around for awhile, as have many other municipalities' by-laws. The intent was generally to prohibit large constrictors. Unfortunately, they didn't specify.

I am pretty sure the sale of humans is covered under criminal law, not municipal bylaws

The thing with these bylaws is that city council would never have even considered snakes, let alone banning them unless some Peon decided to take his retic for a walk to a school yard, and they got complaints up the ying yang.

How long has this law been around? I am sure I have seen baby burms and balls in the pet stores within the last couple years.

Stores are exempt from those laws, they can sell a 25' retic but the buyer cannot own it! Pretty stupid huh? They need to consider what they should be allowed to keep and what not.

Barrie stores are not exempt from those laws. I know of a situation of a Barrie store selling pythons and boas in the back room and by-law officers were called, they had to stop or face charges. Even Display animals have to have special permits even if they are not for sale, a Barrie store had to apply for permits to display to large Burmese pythons a 13 ft and an 18 ft in the store, for educational purposes, took a while to get those too.

and what about those sugar gliders, i cant quite figure that one......they'll rip your arm right off and teeth longer then knives....

O. Thanks. I thought most stores were. LOL. But it is correct that some stores are exempt from laws like that correct? I wonder if my pet skunk, badger, and grizzly bear are going to get removed here in Edmonton. Ohh noooo. I hope not. They are sooooo nice to me. Never even bit or sprayed. LOL.
