THIS IS THE BILL OF ALL BILLS...THIS BILL WAS WRITTEN VERY WELL AND VERY DETAILED AND IF PASSED IT WILL, WITHOUT A DOUBT, BE COPIED THROUGHOUT ALL THE REMAINING STATES! ACT NOW!
READ, SIGN, SHARE!
This Bill is important to demolish because this effects EVERYONE who ever possesses an animal be it reptile, amphibian, insect, rodent, bird, even dogs and cats. This will affect family pets, the pet industry in its entirety including animal product companies, pet stores, animal educators, rescues, and more.
If this bill is enacted, it will force anyone who possesses what ANY government official considers a "Dangerous Animal", to get each and every animal permitted, micro chipped, insured, etc. We need to stop these politicians from taking away our rights. Groups like Humane Society of The United States and Peta are helping give them the fuel they need and we need to stop this before it's too late. Stand together and protect our rights as citizens of the United States of America.
Here is a link to the proposed bill that has been presented to Illinois officials. This includes, all non domesticated and hybrid dogs and cats that aren't registered, non human primates, snakes and lizards (many of them very common in the pet trade such as ball pythons and sand boas), monitor lizards, amphibians and insects that carry toxin or venom (including poison dart frogs, toads, scorpions and tarantulas), rodents, prairie dogs, etc...
THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT THEY POSTED ON THIS BILL, WHICH WILL COVER ANYTHING NOT LISTED...
This bill also allows them to add any animal they wish at any given time, and deem an animal dangerous on the spot, which means your animal could be put on the list if they decide it's dangerous, be it bird, gerbil, hamster, etc.
If you are an animal owner/lover, help protect our hobby and our animal family members, sign this petition, get your voice heard, tell them you OPPOSE ILLINOIS SB3264 DANGEROUS ANIMALS ACT...share what animals you have and how they impacted your life and how passing this bill will affect you. This is our lively hood...what would we do without their companionship?
SHARE THIS PETITION WITH ALL ANIMAL OWNERS ALIKE!
ADDED NOTATION: 2-5-12:
JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA ON HOW THESE POLITICIANS AND GROUPS ARE TAKING IT TOO FAR:
DO Not support groups like HSUS, PETA and ASPCA...they are blinding people with cute and strong animal rescue commercials and asking for money to end pitbull and cockfighting...but behind closed doors refusing to help reptile industries that they helped create chaos with. They are responsible for pushing the Python Law...which was just enacted recently which outlaws the import and out of state transportation of 4 out of the 9 constricting snakes. These 4 species of snakes were added to the Lacy Act which makes it a FELONY to cross state lines with any of the 4 listed. We are talking jailtime for moving to another state with your pet burmese python, yellow anaconda, etc. THIS WILL NOT STOP HERE! EVENTUALLY IT WILL INCLUDE YOUR PET TOO! These people are creating laws to force us to stay in the state we are in if we are to keep our pet burmese (and anaconda, etc) AND THEN ON TOP OF IT CREATING LAWS WITHIN EACH STATE (LAW ABOVE) LISTING THEM DANGEROUS TO MAKE YOU THEN HAVE TO PAY HANDSOMELY TO BE ABLE TO KEEP IT. What they don't understand is by doing this they will force people who can not afford the permits, chips and fees and end up having to abandon or dump their animal...forcing people to create more rescues and sanctuaries that the people that created and supported this law (HSUS,etc) IS NOT WILLING TO DONATE MONEY TO HELP SUPPORT. How can you say you help with all animals....when the reptiles are just as important and you're refusing to help?
We have already lost the 4 constrictors...help us protect the other 5, possibly get back the first 4...and protect all the other animals we keep. It is their way of taking away our rights and our money.
