I feel some sloganeering coming on:
Kein Python ist illegal. No python is illegal.
No borders, no nations, keep the python importations.
No wonder the guy felt free to have all sorts of illegal substances in his home! Would YOU voluntarily go into a house where there are 20 pythons?? Not me! I think that undercover cop who made the bust should get extra hazardous duty pay.
Not to mention the animal control people who will have to deal with those snakes. UGH!!
My cats are strictly indoors. They don't pick up fleas, ticks, or any other unsavory critters. And they are in no danger of being swooped up by large hawks, which occasionally attack, kill and carry off cats and/or small dogs in our area. My precious furbabies are as safe as I can keep them.
Susan I/S.... The kitty that is being reported as stalking the guy was doing nothing more than trying to lead him away from her little cubs.... The guy even appears to have provoked the mother some, to get a response. First rule of hiking, if you see babies, retreat.
It was the other way around. She was pushing him away from her cubs. He was not taunting her to get a response. Read the article.
Officials with Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources had nothing but praise for him.
You did great,” Scott Root, DWR’s conservation outreach manager for central Utah, told Burgess on Monday, where they met at the Slate Canyon trailhead. “You did awesome.”
Root said Burgess did almost everything right. “He backed away. He didn’t go toward the mountain lion or her kittens. He made a lot of noise. ... He stayed large, he stayed loud and he backed away from the area for quite a while. I think he did everything really well.”
“You want to remain large and you want to remain making a lot of noise. And that’s what he did.”

How about a mountain lion? Here Kitty Kitty... -------
First, what a jerk!!, and I'm glad the pythons were seized.
My daughter lives in a hilly area which is heavily saturated with mortals. She has learned from past experience to keep her dog in the house, or in the back-yard when it is well lighted by the sun, because many mountain lions live in those people-populated hills. They (the m.ls.), even freely walk down the middle of a busy street above her house, just like they own the joint, and grab pets for their dinner if they get a chance.
Even so, the laws don't allow people to harm these wild, dangerous critters--not even with a bee-bee gun (to try and scare them away).
I like to take walks on my block (down the hill from her) where I don't need to worry about being attached by wild animals. :)
