The proposed USF&W ban on Boas and Pythons

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has made a significant move towards banning the importation and interstate transport of Boa Constrictors and Pythons in the United States. Quietly published in the Federal Register, the agency is accepting public comments until April 30th. If enacted this will devastate an already hard hit industry, dealing a fatal death blow to a large number of businesses dependent on this segment of the industry and drying up the supply of these pets to pet owners across the United States. To review the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal, please look at the following document http://kingsnake.com/FWSReview.pdf Please go to http://www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/component/mainmain=SubmitComment&o=09000064803a565f to submit your comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding this proposal before April 30th. Be sure to submit ALL of the requested information, otherwise your comment will not be considered. Please take the time to review the proposal in full, and only submit comments relevant to the specific requests. General comments and abusive comments are liable to be discarded or unread. Please spell check your comments before submitting them. You can also contact your State Representatives and Congressperson by clicking each link under \"Links\" to the right. Thank you for taking the time to sign this online petition to voice your opposition to this proposal, but please realize that this petition will NOT be considered or looked at by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. You MUST go to http://www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/component/mainmain=SubmitComment&o=09000064803a565f by April 30th to have your voice heard by the USF&W Service.
