Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

Amazing how people can have such contempt for another living thing. What's even more sad is that this kind of behavior isn't exactly rare, this redneck clown just happened to get caught. To be honest, I'm surprised that they are even pursuing charges, being that the abused animal was a snake. Normally they could care less about a person abusing a snake, now some cute, fluffy mammal, that's another story. It's crazy that even on the rare occasion that I have a person in my snake room that isn't really a "reptile" person, the first thing usually out of their mouth is usually something like: "oh yeah, I always shoot em when I see em. Last summer I shot an 8 footer, but it was him or me, you know?" Even trying to educate them doesn't work, just falls on deaf ears. They want to continue to feel like the big, macho hunters out in the wilderness doing all of society a favor by ridding us of these evil, devil creatures that are out to kill us. And these new T.V. shows aren't helping either....ie: Rattlesnake Republic, Snake Savior.

Providing that the article brings all details, the man will not be charged for torturing or killing the snake but he „faces charges of possessing or capturing a venomous reptile without a permit and discharging a firearm across a public roadway”.

If that is the fact, I would regard it as a legal loophole as everybody may say that a snake may be killed as long as you don´t try to capture and possess it before killing it or don´t discharge a firearm on a public roadway.

No comment from my side about that guy, I met hundreds of that type, not only in the USA. Nevertheless I regard it as our job to change their minds and I know it can work in many cases though sadly Frank is right in saying that our arguments (often) "just fall on deaf ears".
But I also know that there will always be that kind of ignoramus no matter what kind of laws we have. Laws in Austria and Germany are absolutely clear, prohibiting any harassing, hunting or killing of reptiles,... but still many people will kill any snake they meet and feel like a heroe.

Best regards,
Rainer

Pathetic behavior. I love that part of the world having lived there but I fear a lot of snakes of all kinds suffer a similar fate.
