Humane Talk (7-07-2014) #8028 (EP 34 & 35): Large constrictor snakes are dangerous as pets! Wayne discusses stopping the pet trade in large constrictor snakes for animal welfare and public safety because invasive Burmese pythons are killing native animals in Florida, while pythons and other large constrictors kept as pets have killed several people. Wayne talks about killing campaigns against coyotes in which the U.S. government poisons and traps many coyotes and other wild animals, often in cruel ways. Find out why The HSUS is working to stop this taxpayer-funded killing program, and to replace it with effective nonlethal methods.
