Why would you ban animals like Guinea Pigs? They can't survive in the wild, thus they're not a threat.

Why would you ban pets that can survive in the wild? Southern FL is a classic example of not why we need this law but rather what people will do with these animals if they are banned thus more environmental damage not less. Also, animals that get banned are still pets people just get them on underground basis which leads to lack of protection for those animals.

And why exotics?!!! They should throw cats on there too if they're even remotely doing this out of concern for the environment! Cats are feral in pretty much every state but Alaska. Feral cats do faaar more damage than all other escaped animal species combined and we don't even enforce laws against people feeding them! It's not cats or dogs because they know that would cause more of an uproar.

Did you see that Humane Society and the Nature Conservancy are two of the groups pushing this? I'm so disappointed in them.

...

Oh and for the few on my flist who don't like exotic pets, just think of the economy. Shutting down a major part of the pet trade... that's a lot of jobs, people.

Or notice that their list of representatives includes Hawaii but not FL. Of the two states that are supposedly effected the most by this, one isn't even allowed a say!
