Some people make me sick......

Yes may seem a over reaction but seriously some people make me feel ill from their actions.

Warning rant coming on....... lol

Now i love snakes and have done so much reading up on then and gee's their a big part of my life, i own placid pythons as you can probably tell lol and love them like i love my two monkeys Bailey and Hartley, so where is all this leading to?

Well it just makes me sick when blog surfing or even checking out the various forums i am on and i come accross people saying they have killed a Brown snake, or Red Belly Black.

I mean seriously don't people realise it is not only illegal to kill native australian snake but also very stupid? Don't people realise that most snake bites occur when someone is trying to kill the snake as it feels threatened and is in defense mood?

It is seriously stupid and moronic behaviour oh i had a snake in x or in my garden so i went screaming and got someone to kill it, what a bloody hero killing an animal who was just looking for warmth and somewhere to hide. I really wish this behaviour would stop and they would just leave the snake alone close the door and wait for it to make its way back outside not find some hero to kill it.

I wish the authorities in charge of looking after our native reptiles would actually do something about the people that kill these animals as until that happens people will just willy nilly kill these beautiful australian reptiles.

I mean the RSPCA fines or jails people that mistreat or kill dogs, cats, sealife, birds you name it, but who is going to really look after our reptiles and punish those who kill or mistreat them?

Ok off my soap box now but it is just so disgusting coming across people who kill these animals when its not even being threatening just trying to find somewhere to hide. Read up on snake a bit do some research, keep at hand the local snake catchers number, seriously it is not that hard to even just spend ten minutes reading up on what to actually do if you find a snake in your house or garden (and no grabbing a broom and shovel is not what you do)

(disclaimer when i say hero i mean it very sarcastically as i really don't think someone who kills any type of animal is a hero what so ever)
