Thank you all for taking the time to speak out against this ridiculous petition. It is times like this we must pull together and stand tall for our reptilian friends. The following paragraph was taken from page 9 of the January 2002 issue of REPTILES Magazine.


HSUS REPTILE BAN NOT WELL RECEIVED
In September 2001, the Human Society of the United States released a report urging a ban on reptiles as pets in the U.S. (see last month’s column for more info.). The response has not been as favorable as the HSUS may have liked. The HSUS online petition in support of its position, “Ban Reptiles as Pets,” had 608 signatures by mid-October. Meanwhile, an opposing petition titled “Reptile Education First” had gathered 3,527 signatures. To sign the petition in support of reptile education, be sure to visit http://gopetition.com/info.php?currentregion=237&petid=408.


I thank you all for the moment of time you have spent reading this. Now do not let that time go to waste. Go sign this petition immediately so that we may show them how much our reptilian friends mean to us.
Thank you!!!
