Default APA attack shows – again

The Animal Protection Agency is taking the opportunity to attack shows under the review by the Environmental Audit Committee of Wildlife Crime.

The APA submission can be viewed here.

If you are a keeper that breeds disposes of surplus animals at shows, advertises them on the internet or to dealers then you should take the time to read the submission and see if you agree with what they have to say. This is a government select committee that like all select committees is very influential.

REPTA/FBH has made a joint submission see here.

We shall in due course be submitting a corrective memorandum to that of the APA drawing the committee’s attention to some of the inaccurate and misleading information contained in their submission.

This post has just 34 views. Perhaps it should be duplicated in the snake, lizard and shelled section to further raise awareness, seeing as those sub forums are more popular than this one. Especially as you raise a very important issue.

Just a thought.

Aggreed, points like this need to be raised in locations of high traffic.

I think you are absolutely right but when ever I have done so I get told off by the moderators and the post removed. Personally I think as many people as possible should know what is going on!

Whilst I absolutely agree with you there is a prevalence of “it will never happen” and this is all scaremongering [the exact purpose of the latter eludes me] Nevertheless the ostrich position is very popular!! Personally I don’t advocate this, if someone is going to insert something sharp up my posterior I think I would prefer to see it coming so I could brace myself rather than it coming as a complete shock! Then again perhaps that’s just me - now where is that bucket of sand!!!!!!!

while we should ALL regard fair and humane treatment of animals as sacrosanct, we should nevertheless be wary of power hungry individuals who propose far-reaching,and draconian policy in order to achieve short term fame and influence within the framework of their own organisation,the inference from that should be obvious,ALL ideas are the original creation of an INDIVIDUAL MIND,the exposure of warped ambition and possible other hidden agendas from that source should be regarded as within the public interest to be exposed.
