they in turn should of had signs on/posted if they allowed or not the handling of certain animals by the public
Not only did we post signs of that nature but to the fact that certian animals didn't make the best pets ( hamsters ) and posted signs on steps/stairs, plus don't put fingers in bird cages. Even with this signage we had people trying to sue but all were always thrown out of court DUE to the signs.
This always amazes me with people. Every pet store I've worked with has signs and there is always a nitwit or two a week getting blood drawn by a ferret, rat or bird. But they wouldn't dream of sticking their fingers in with the reptiles....and that is the least likely to hurt them.
I agree about sueing .....Petco is big and their lawyers will eat you up. The only affect would be from a large petition signings or city action.
