Live Feeding Laws
Firstly, this is not a debate, or discussion into the practices, nor is it for you to say how good, or bad you think it is.
Myself, and a few others have been making countless posts, telling people of the legalities of live feeding.
This is quoted from British Parlements resources site.
The new laws concerning animal welfare may IN THE FUTURE make it illegal, but there is an equal chance that they will make it ILLEGAL TO FEED F/T, or PREKILLED.
Because, under proposed versions, they will make it a legal requirement that natural behavior is exibited, and as said, this would mean live feeding only.
Another proposal outlaws it completely. This would mean alot of dead reptiles(boiga, and other species that will not take FT/prekilled.)
Basically, i cannot see either of these versions getting through, and i foresee the laws remaining the same.
The ambiguity probably arose from other laws, banning fighting such as cock fights, and bull fights etc.
I CAN LEGALLY, IF I WANTED TO, PUT A PUPPY WITH A BURMESE PYTHON, THE SAME AS I CAN A MOUSE AND A ROYAL, OR A RABBIT AND A BOA.
It is my choice as to whether or not i do this, and i personally choose not to.
All quotations can be found on:
UK Parliament - Publications
(Disclaimer; i do not condone live feeding, under normal circumstance, or where there is a alternative, but in some cases it is necessary, and no matter what our opinions, it is ultimatly LEGAL)
