ACTION NEEDED: Devastating Blow to US Snake Keepers
On the Web - US Fish & Wildlife has made its move to add more species of snakes to the same list that bans the sale and transport of Burmese pythons across state lines. Added to that list will be boa constrictors, reticulated pythons and green anacondas. What can you do? Support USARK, the United States Association of Reptile Keepers. They’ve got an ongoing lawsuit against USF&W already, and need every dollar we can send them to continue that fight. Sign up for their newsletters and be ready to write to your congressmen and other officials that may be in a position to restore sanity to this overreaching government agency.
UPDATE: Boa Constrictors have been taken off the list, but reticulated pythons and three species of green anaconda remain on the list.@ On the Web
