…I mean, would anyone put it past them?
The RSPCA has called for a general ban on keeping monkeys as pets after a case of animal neglect was heard by a Plymouth court.
Yes indeed. Because this idiot bought an animal he was unable to care for properly (and was rightly punished for his cruelty by our judicial system) the RSPCA seeks to ensure that no-one else – whether able or not – can own one.
What next? Well, thanks to the EU, reptiles:
The legislation could effectively ban the keeping of many common reptile and amphibian species, according to the UK’s leading governmental adviser on exotic pets.Chris Newman, of the Reptile and Exotic Pet Trade Association (REPTA), says that few reptile keepers or businesses are aware of the pending legislation, or the potentially devastating consequences it will have for traders and pet owners.
And no doubt people will applaud both these initiatives, because they have no desire for a marmoset or a Burmese python or a tree frog. And they think it’ll stop there.
But it never does, with these people. Does it?
