I only try to offer what is already out in the open press ... for good or for bad. Not being a crotalid keeper (though I am 'rattler-sympathetic), I try not to comment or 'editorialise' the items.
The value of the postings is two-fold (I hope):
1. You get to read the actual press item, and not have to depend on a "friend-of-a-friend who heard something" ... well, you know how it goes.
2. There is value in the replies posted by those on the forum that have knowledge in the discipline ... false reporting is corrected (at least in the forum), good reporting is confirmed, and other items result in general comment, debate or sometimes in related action.
I'm in no way a supporter of such slaughters ... but there are items in the press that are, and I think that the forum should be aware of what some are printing ... and by doing so, influencing public opinion about your reptilian interests.
