Revoke Trevor Browne's reg 17

This petition had 244 supporters

On the 19/1/2018 a video appeared on some news sites of an apparent Reg17 holder (Trevor Browne) cruely handling a venomous Tiger Snake with a pair of inhumane tongs.

These tongs clearly cause nothing but pain to the snake which is clearly visable in the video. The snake repeatedly bites the tongs trying to get away from the pain. 

Trevor had a hook that he could have easily used, but clearly used the tongs as it had a gopro camera attached to it in an attempt to possibly scare the public to think these snakes are aggressive and invoke panic and hatred towards snakes. 

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions are the governing body to investigate and revoke this license and need to do so. His actions are nothing short of barbaric practice that was unnessicary.

As a Reg17 licensed relocator myself and have many friends who are also Reg17 holders, we are deeply disturbed by the actions of this relocator. We are all about educating the public about snakes, not causing them harm.

Video off the news site of said actions.
