Thank you to everyone who responded to my last journal and signed the petition! We are still looking for signatures.
Here is an update on what happened at the meeting last night. It's quite clear the opposition knows nothing about the keeping of snakes, nor of snakes in general given that the woman spearheading the opposition held up a picture of a cobra (Thomas's snakes are boas, of the subspecies boa constrictor imperator) and spouted off inane, completely false information about the animals in an attempt to strike fear into the audience's hearts.
Now, Thomas's local news channel Fox13 is looking for comments on the situation. A lot of folks wrote really great responses to my journal yesterday - if you have a few moments, please leave your thoughts here. You can copy paste your response to my journal yesterday if you need to, anything is appreciated!
Thank you all again.
