:Illegal animal trade ? haha give me a break you watch to much tv.
:yup, that couple hours a week of Stargate SG1 is killing me-distorting my realitys. Maybe it is the work in the pet trade and at the zoo that made me a bit more aware of how much illegal animal trade goes on. I am by no means supporting need for legislation but if the laws are in place and broken it is illegal....like it or not some law enforcement folks get funny about that sort of thing.
