It baffles me that this company is still in operation. When do the animals become eligable for rights?

If a company mass produces dogs in horrible conditions they usually get exposed and shut down.. Why is it so difficult to help out the poor herps?

not that i agree with what they are doing, y are ppl making such a fuss about them???? all they're doing is the exact same that so many of u said was good for the hobby..they are farming reptiles, what makes u think that any other farm (in indonesia exporting bloods for example) is any better than them?
cheers

I think it's the fact that they were giving away / selling animals that were sick and diseased which was making everyone upset. If they can't even provide for and take care of the animals they're "producing" (You know what I mean), then they shouldn't be in the business at all. That's what everyone was getting upset about I think.

I know a few folks who are working with the El Salvadoran government to try and restrict shipping to keep sick animals out of the US. I've not heard if anyone is trying to restrict shipping to the other nations where Reptile Republic exports.

It's really an uphill battle though. Since El Salvador is a third-world economy animal rights are just not seen as very important. Human rights arent' very well protected there so animals suffer even more.

I've been working with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Agriculture to try and close the loopholes which allow sick reptiles to enter the pet trade. Each department seemed to think it was the other one's jurisdiction and the animals fall through the cracks. Ag only helps certain mammals. FWS helps native fish, birds, reptiles etc. and just a select few imported species. Every other herp falls through the cracks at present but folks are working on closing them up.
