EchosMom I agree with you and apologize for leading the thread in to a topic about PETA. That ranch does need to be shut down. We need to get stronger legislation in place to combat the amount of animal abuse that we are seeing in this country. The number and types of animals that are being bred for the pet trade is absurd. You can buy anything you want in this country today regardless of the status of the animal. There are exotic pet breeders out there that you can legally purchase animals that are critically endangered. I made the huge mistake of working at a large chain pet store for a couple of months a few years ago. If people could see the treatment that the animals recieve in these stores they'ld be sickened. Regardless of the stores policies you have teenagers caring for animals that are clueless on the proper care required or just too lazy to provide it. Nancy
