>>>Oh yea, well I think you've been breathing too much swamp gas! :-)<<<

Not possible, John - we only have freshwater spring-fed swamps over here! You can't even accuse me of having licked too many cane toads, because they're not here yet either. Perhaps it's a bad case of sunstroke.


>>>I think we both see the same problem and just have different ideas on how to deal with it.<<<

The problem is a complex one. We spend huge amounts of time each year wrestling with the politics of similar problems, and there are never easy solutions. Sometimes it would be nice to try different ideas to see whether they work in practice, but often we're reduced to merely arguing about various theories! C'est la vie.


>>>Allowing people the freedom of keeping potentially dangerous animals as long as they prove that they have the knowledge, experience and facilities to do so.<<<

I'm in full support of this, which is why I talk about common sense legislation. Alas, these sensibilities are hard to find when it comes to such matters! I think insufficient people agree with our philosophy, that's the problem.

Best wishes,

Adam
