    Pythons confiscated from a Cleveland home

    It's already starting here in Ohio. For those of you that don't get the Cleveland news, this was on fox 8 last night.

    Its a shame.

    Ugh!

    Just another reminder to never tell my neighbors I have pet snakes. Oh, heavens, she has PYTHONS!

    Lol, I love the "carnivorous snakes" part.
    That neighbor is nosy and needs to spend less time spying on her neighbors and more time in counseling or visiting local herp societies, trying to figure out why she has such an irrational phobia.
    I don't honestly believe she stayed up all night waiting for the snakes. She was willing to come outside to talk to news crews while they were taking the snakes out, wasn't she?

    It amazes me how these people's neighbors were in such fear for their lives. They seem to have lived near all those "dangerous to them" snakes for several years with no incidents according to the report. Now due to the neighbors attitude toward another person's hobby they lose all their loved pets.

    I have coworkers who feel the same way & believe all my snakes run rampant throughout my home waiting for visitors to come over so they can attack & consume them. The non reptile population will never rest til they kill out the very last snake, including the ones in the wild!

    moronic is a good word.

    While you may not be serious, this type of reaction is one of the reason so many of us are seen in a negative light.

    Think before you speak, think twice before you post.

    Re: Pythons confiscated from a Cleveland home

    Before every one goes viral on them read what it says. They were suppose to have a PERMIT and didn't. With a permit they could have told the animal people to take a hike. The lesson to learn here is to always be above board with your pets. get the permits and don't violate the law. It only adds fuel to the anti-reptile fear.
    One positive note here, the vets looked at the animals and found them to be in excellent shape.

    At this point your pets have already been confiscated and dogs are perfectly legal. But I was kidding...I'm not a dog fan...

    hmmmm....I don't understand???? Didn't they just pass that executive order but that the ones in possesion currently would be grandfathered in? Im confused as to why they took his snakes?? Prior to this executive order I thought they were legal. Am I thinking wrong?

    Its scary how someone can make a call and your whole life/career/ whatever is gone. I am very outspoken as to what I have and do many shows at the local schools to teach children about responsible pet ownership and reptiles in general. I have often thought about ..."omg what if someone calls the game and fish or HSUS on me". But really...cmon on in....I don't keep anything illegal, my animals are housed in the best condidtions and I WILL prove that, they are clean, fed and happy. The only possible problem I can percieve is with my HOA....which are pretty much whack a doodles. Which if they ever went there then we would be going house to house counting fish in tanks!!!!

    Lets just say it has advanced to ....way too much to list
