 Just a quick question

hey i am usually on the uromastyx forums but i am also fully aware of the burmese situation in south Florida but i was wondering if there is charges against reptile abuse kinda like dog and cat and other pet abuse. Cause i know you can go to jail if you abuse a dog for atleast a year or so but what about reptiles, can you go to jail??

not sure as that their is a specific law that protects reptiles from animal abuse, but i do know that a florida couple whose Burmese python killed their 2yr old daughter was found guilty of murder and had been initially charged with animal abuse because their burm was severely underweight and hadn’t been fed in at least a few months, leading it to escape and try to feed itself.

The answer is yes. I read an article about some people being wanted for shooting a (pet) burmese python and leaving it to die.
