DAILY REPORTER (Derby, Kansas) 22 January 03 Proposed pet ordinance could affect pet owners, shop (Karen Faley)
A proposed pet owner ordinance could be devastating for a local pet shop, as well as Derby snake owners.
John Stolz, who is the co-owner of Tails & Scales, a pet store in Derby, which sells, among other things, snakes and snake-related items, said about 70 percent of his income is from snake sales alone.
In a pet-owner ordinance presented to Derby City Council by city staff last week, venomous snakes and constrictors would be outlawed.
City council members voted to study this issue before making their final decision on the staff-endorsed policy, when three of them voiced they were not sure about another aspect of the ordinance: limiting the total number of cats and dogs in a household to four.
But the clause pertaining to constrictors remained untouched.
"It's pretty crazy, the way they worded it," he said. "Pretty much all non-venomous snakes are constrictors," said Stolz. "If they don't have venom, I mean, they've got to have some way to kill their prey."
