I get your point on individual animal registration, but tens of thousands of people in the uk do it out of choice for the privilage of showing rover/fluffy at pedigree shows so it doesn't seem entirely unreasonable to me. Stepping down a little though we could always just register keepers at up to a given class on production of relevent insurance. The 1-20 idea was more for sake of simili than anything else, I agree that the differences arre probaly too academic than to warrant more than a handful of classes, but it's interesting to see you classed V. berus as a bit of a Ford Focus/Vauxhall Astra in those stakes - I would gather then that something like V. urnsii (sic?) would be lower still, but the DWAA blanket bans all viperids. And on the DWA act itself, the proposed revisions have been out for a goodly while now and the idea of a unified pricing/inspection scheme is welcome news. It still, however, gives the local authority power to refuse on grounds of prejudice. And finally, in a condensed rant - the DWAA needs to rethink it's position - if it still claims that public safety is the only consideration of the act then it's fubar, especially on its inconsistency with british fauna. Still, any improvement is always welcome. BTW, any idea when the revision will be passed?
Many thanks, Lee.
