    right, this is why we must follow the lead of Dr.Lex Luthor in the Super man magazine series and build governments with artists, poets, philosophers, scientists, lawyers, doctors, etc not just our common present day politician, so when issues arise the chief herpetologist Miggie will have a say in congress and it will be honored haha! but seriously i see the perfect government with the implementation of pure talent in all fields like WOW!

    What a load of BS. Is this law up for a public vote?

    Tell people you're taking their dogs and cats (and other pets) away and you'll have a mass exodus or hopefully, riots.

    And what is the deal with banning everything except fish? If these people are worried about mass animal abuse, FISH (the only pets allowed) are the most abused & poorly cared for of all animals Goldfish in particular are generally doomed on a monumental scale, - far more than Hamsters this law seems obsessed with. If we're running a death tally you could never stop counting the dead ornamental fish.

    As for the hamster dilemma Just get some big snakes for the pet shelters and feed the reeking little things off. Problem solved!


    However, the kinda pets a lot of us partake in don't come from a pet shop anyway. Though this would screw over any of the few and far between quality reptile and insect shops. Don't know if there are any in SF but there never could be either.

    I totally agree that banning pet sales will NOT help anything. Keeping hermit crabs, I've seen a lot of kids want to get a few on impulse... it's not pet sales that are the problem, but the lack of information when people decide to get certain pets. For example, it's not appropriate to house hermit crabs alone on gravel in a "kritter kage", but most people don't know that when they go out to pet shops. IMO there's no such thing as a care-free pet unless you want a pet rock. Pet shops need to get the proper information about care to their buyers, and the buyers need to follow through and care for them properly. It might scare people away from getting certain pets, but the pets might find better, more prepared owners.

    There are a few quality shops around if you look hard enough...

    I'm not sure. I haven't heard about this until now.
