Reptile Killers Caught

The and killed and stole dozens of reptiles have been caught. Both are 17 and have confessed.

These two also trashed the facility beyond use, and stole considerable property.

Sadly, they will not be punished for their extreme cruelty. The New Mexico animal cruelty statue explicitly excludes reptiles. This needs to be changed immediately.

These thugs were caught with 19 stolen turtles -- strange how their parents did not notice the sudden, huge influx of turtles into their home... nor the new bicycle... nor the other stolen property suddenly acquired by their kids.

The 10-foot albino Burmese python, Gloria, stabbed extensively "in the neck" by the thugs appears to be recovering. They claim the 15 snakes still unaccounted for were released into the desert -- if true, they will not survive out of their habitat.

What a dreadful thing to happen. What makes people want to do something like this?
