UPDATES

  • Florida Fish and Wildlife has stepped out of bounds yet again when it comes to private animal ownership. Last week they killed some pythons a man had after a rule from 2021 made them illegal to keep. He was able to rehome many of them but could not find homes in time for the remaining snakes. The FWS officers mistakenly killed a legally kept snake that was gravid and owned by another reptile keeper. Understandably the reptile community is upset and demanding an investigation into the matter and FWC as a whole. FWC has been notorious for subjective enforcement of the law and working closely with HSUS the past few years. You may read the official press release from USARK FL below, but be warned, the video is graphic and depicts dead animals.
