They tried that here is Silvercity NM along with all the animals that are not indigenous here...so I ask who was going to collect the hamsters....LOL Anyhow the people won and the politicians gave up and appoligized for creating such an uproar!!! HURRAY!!
:Where I live all constricting snakes are outlawed. Corn snakes, kingsnakes, ball pythons... all considered dangerous.

This is the reason these laws exist. It is due to people being uneducated and fearful.
