Someone needs to explain how they can not be responsible for the thousands of dollars rescues spent to save, vet, rehab, foster and find homes for these abused and neglected creatures. At the very least, a fine large enough to reimburse these organizations should have been levied. Never ever again should they be permitted to have any time of an animal. Mental illness can be treated, abuse of animals should not be taken so lightly. The result of this case is disturbing to say the least. We all need to hear from the judge who rendered this insane verdict.Jan 22, 2013
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) removed seven reptiles from an unlicensed man last week. FWC investigators charged Nick Mitchell with unlawful possession of seven venomous reptiles and several other violations related to the care, keeping and labeling of his animals. The animals, including a gila monster, black monocled cobra, rhino viper, dusky pygmy rattlesnake, black neck spitting cobra and two banded cobras, were seized and placed at a local licensed facility.
