Exclamation Fraser Valley Herpetocultural Society to be featured on BCTV News Hour

Henry Piorun and Brad MacDonald are on their way down to the BCTV News Station to have their fair share of media time, to dispell the misinformation that was broadcast on last lights News Hour involving The RRRefuge. This will air tonight on the 6:00 news

They have our Big Burm (17 foot) as well as Miranda's very tame Anaconda.

So if you can tape it do so I would love to get a copy.

Thank you

Teresa Piorun
the Fraser Valley Herpetocultural Society

If anyone can get me a copy of the tape, I will do my best to get it into a digital format so it can be posted online. I would need the permission of the BCTV station of course, but this can be arranged.

Drat! I think I missed it! If someone DOES manage to get a .mov or .avi file of the clip, could you post it here?!? I REALLY want to see it!
I did catch the CTV news on Channel 9. They also aired a segment where a reporter returned to the Reptile Refuge and asked why the snakes were housed together and why they pulled that publicity stunt yesterday. It was rather amusing to watch "Spring... whatever his name is" back peddle and stammer at the sudden turn of the media. He used the excuse again that snakes like companionship, which the reporter quickly shot down. They also interviewed "Brad" (I am REALLY horrid with last names...) who worked with snakes for the local film industry. It was good to see an intelligent person being interviewed for once!
Several people mentioned the WSPCR and FVHS offering to help rehome "abandoned" reptiles. Currently the WSPCR does take in reptiles and finds them suitable homes. I'm not sure if the FVHS does or not. I think it is a great idea to offer the assistance of these two herp societies to the RRR to help finding suitable experienced homes for some, or all, of the animals at the Refuge now.
Take care

Hey Guys... well I was a little mislead because what actually transpired was they (Brad and Henry) got there late and they interviewed Brad w/Burm.. Henry was one of the guys holding the snake. But I understand it came off really well. so it was just Brad talking I personally missed it. I plan on catching it at 11:00 it was on CTV.

:-)
thats all for now
Terri

<giggles and runs around patting everyone on the back> YAY! While I missed the broadcast on bctv at 6pm, I'm hoping to catch it at 11pm. I'm glad to see some POSITIVE press for herps...
Take care

Well that had the people at the reptile refuge squirming!

Is it true that a snake can lay fertile eggs even when it has never been with a male? Or is this just another one of their misconceptions just like a snake needing company?

BTW Dave, it's not on Global. It was on CTVBC. On Star Choice it is 321. It will probably be on @ 11:00.

Anyone know what channel it is on on Bell? I think I missed it and I will watch it at 11:00 or 11:30 whenever it is on.

Greg.

I am assuming it is on 261

I also went in with Brad and Henry today after I organized this interview with Mark Miller the reporter and called Henry to go with me. Mark did an awesome job portraying the 'other' side of the story, and Brad did excellent PR work in the interview, kept his cool and was very intellectual and precise about the whole ordeal. I think today went very well, and the RRRefuge has only dug themselves in even further. Good job Henry and Brad and thanks for coming with me as I wouldn't have been able to do the PR work as it was professionally done.
