NY reptile ban sign now

Dear Reptile Enthusiast:

The New York Senate and Assembly have moved to pass legislation that would bann the sale and severely restrict ownership of many pet reptiles, including larger monitor species and all members of the family boidae. This includes even small, harmless species such as ball pythons and sand boas! This law has been debated for several years now, but now looks to be moving forward.....

Here is a link to view the proposed law: http://assembly.state.ny.us/leg/?bn=A02684&sh=t

In order for this legislation to become law, it must be signed by Governor Pataki, which could happen very soon!! If you are a New York state resident, please email the governor as soon as possible, asking him to veto this legislation!! Please be polite and to the point, but indicate the absurdity of banning small, harmless species such as ball pythons and sand boas! These present NO threat to public safety!

Residents of other states can also stress that they still spend their dollars at our reptile expo in White Plains, purchasing harmless pet reptiles from in many cases NY breeders and dealers. All that sales tax money goes to NY!

Governor Patacki can be emailed through this site: http://161.11.3.75/

Thank you in advance for your help

    This ban will do nothing more than create unhappiness, it will also lose tax dollars that come in from private breeders and expo's. I feel it would hinder not help the New Yorkers

    I keep reptiles as pets and resent anyone telling me that I don't have that freedom. Why are we at war if not for the rights of individuals?

    the only thing a ban will achieve is loss of control over the herp population in captivity and make it more difficult for herps to get vet treatment. Norway has a ban on herps, Norway is a very bad example to follow in this context.

    There is NO reason to Ban reptiles especially because of peoples fears. My little girl was attacked by a poodle and is very afraid of dogs. Does that mean we should ban dogs? We must educate the public. Snakes are not the problem, people are! Please, do n
