  • LEGALIZE REPTILES IN NORWAY

    Dear all!

    As many of you probably know, keeping reptiles and amphibians is still ILLEGAL in Norway, as the only country the world. For 30+ years we have been fighting for our right to have a legal hobby. For the last 6 years we have been making good progress, and all signs were now indicating that we should be able to legalize around 20 species. Not much, but a start… All parties involved agreed that this would be in the animals best interest, as there is around 150.000 illegal reptiles and amphibians in Norway, and list of legal and recomended species might help people choose the best suited species as their pets. Things wee looking very good indeed, until our incompetent minister of agriculture recently decided that there should be no change in this matter. His main argument is that "They dont belong in Norway"

    Please help us figh for our animals by signing this petition, and spreading it to your friends. If it can happen here it can happen anywhere, and not just with reptiles…

          Signed. For a person like me with fur allergy, reptiles and fish are my only options. The people in Norway should be given the same option as we.

          If all else fails you have my warm welcome to Sweden

            Keep fighting!

                  Yes, this is a surprise for many, especially since there is no good arguments for it, and people just ignore this law. Therefore there is 150.000- 200.000 illegal reptiles in Norway, and the best this minister could come up with as a solution is to have them all killed by a veterinarian... Good thinking!

                  Thanks for signing and shearing! Please continue!

                  Best regards,
