"yes we have restrictions on dogs, cats..all must be microchipped (even mongrels) and registered with local council cats are not to be out after dark..or before light.... goats? pfffft thats just silly."
How is that silly? From what I hear, goats are causing a lot of problems in Australia. If herp keepers have to buy permits, submit to inspections, inform the government every time they want to obtain a herp, etc., why shouldn't people who are keeping animals that can be just as destructive have to do the same? I never liked double-standards.
