200 exotic animals found on Milwaukee's south side - JSOnline Rats, mice carpeted floor where exotic animals were kept - JSOnline These two articles appeared in my local newspaper this last week. You can read them for yourself, but the basics are that one woman owned two houses filled to the brim with exotic reptiles, including crocodiles, alligators, anacondas, boa constrictors and a 150 pound alligator snapping turtle. The animals were housed in incredibly tight quarters which obviously hadn't been cleaned in a long time. How do you think incidents like this affect reptile care hobbyists and public perception of reptile care hobbyists? Do you think incidents like this might be, in part, responsible for the perception that reptile bans, like the boid ban working its way through Congress, are necessary?
