    Try calling the Department of Agriculture. It's their job to inspect pet stores and ensure that the animals are properly taken care of. The pet store will get a warning... possibly a fine, and will have their license stripped if they don't improve the conditions.

    We should really do something to stop bad treatment of reptiles in petstrores. And not only that but we should fight to keep our hobby from being for lack of a better word outlawed. So many people are trying to stop the reptile pet trade and they don't even have the right facts.

    Isn't that the truth... They're passing a law here that will require that anyone with a snake over 8' long needs a permit. I think it goes into effect Jan 2006.

    As for pet store neglect. I know it sounds cheesy, but honestly it's up to you to report abuse. The Department of Agriculture is responsible for investigating the claims... and they will carry out their promise to fine or other methods of punishing the store. Trust me, I know from experience that the Dept. of Agriculture is no joke. When I was manager at a pet store, I filed a complaint and a police report when I heard of what one of my employees did on my day off. (Long story.) To make it short, I quit my job, filed a complaint and a police report, the Dept of Ag. came in and nailed the people responsible to the wall. The owner lost his license, the people were arrested, and the store was disenfranchised. (It was a bad, bad scene.) As for the Dept of Ag... they'll do their job... they just need people to give them a heads up every now and again.

    I don't regret it one little bit. That man (the owner) had no business owning a pet store and he deserved to have his license stripped and his business disenfranchised. I'm not a mean person, but that man was a psycho!!!

    You think thats bad I have had 4 petshops closed down due to the care of their animals. But one had sludge in the dog biscuts and everything was disgusting. I don't regret any of it. I just think that if you are going to open a pet store or any store for that matter you should care about your store and the things in it.
