      Key words- "without a permit."

      There's potential that the permitting process, if developed and administered properly, COULD be a good thing. A great opportunity for screening and educating potential pet owners (ie- you think you can keep a ball python in a 10gal tank for life? DENIED!)

      I just have my doubts about it happening that way.

        This will not happen, it requires training and certified staff.

        Take it from someone who has some government experience: user fees, licenses, permits, ect are revenue/enterprise. Governmental bodies have very few ways of generating monies. These are easy way of creating funds because no one likes taxes.

        There are unknowns. Similar legislation/rules have been put forth. Permits could mean limiting sales, fees for permits, and inspections. Most of which could help weed out crap breeders, however it may put limitations on sales/transfers and most pet limitations are also tied to micro-chipping and to stop breeding activities. My city tried this a few years ago. Read post #5: http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/foru...ad.php?t=22314

          Oh believe me, I know- my background is social services.

          It's too bad, because my understanding is that there are some fairly functual systems in other countries (ie- Europe) that COULD be used as a model...

            Yeah there's no way that anything like this could ever be enforced. I work at a vet clinic and we have numerous clients that are over the county limit, but nothing ever happens. The county is aware of it too, because all the pets have to be registered (via rabies vaccines). The only people that would really be punished by these laws would be pet owners that actually take care of their pets and register them with the county/state.

                I do not understand why they are doing this, it literally makes no sense, the only reason I can think of is to get people to do more misdemeanors, hence more fines, hence more money for the state.

                  Sounds like someone's been watching too many Animal Hording shows to me.
                  That, or they really do want to get more fines/money

                      If someone tried to come to my house and take my animals they don't have to worry about getting bit by one of them. They'd have to worry about their crazy owner running around swinging hammers and throwing knifes. They'd also have to worry about those sedating darts they shoot at me being thrown right back at them
