Default The snake BAN

Hey Reptile Nation,
On Jan. 17th, 2012 U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, announced the reptile ban! But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service did nothing to prove there finding on this ban with the Burmese python, the northern and southern African pythons, and the yellow anaconda! That's why Reptile owners are so against this ban, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, PROVE NOTHING!! But yet They punishing all Reptile owners!!!! But The ban will not affect people who currently own these four species of snakes, other than prohibiting the transportation or selling of the animals across state lines. The ban should be in place by the end of March, when the snakes will be included under the Lacey Act. The act is designed to stop illegal trafficking of specified wildlife, fish and plants. A felony violation of the Lacey Act can bring a five-year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine.
