    First off, exsisting pets are not going to be taken, second if
    it doesnt come from US, and not native it does not belong. I for
    one am so sick of people all over chatboards posting a site that
    tries and tells everyone that their pets will have to go. BS!
    It's a shame that our wildlife all over the world is getting
    exploited, yes I am for control,My own belief is animal
    population is out of control as well as backyard breeders. This
    is only my Opinion and everyone has one, I know. So telling
    people their fish, birds and ferrets will have to go, is nothing
    but crap. Second, does anyone really think the import/export
    will ever stop- NO That people really think pet ownership will
    be dictated- Hell NO This is such a load of Bs. And No Im not
    worried.There are so many here, there will never be a shortage
    of parrots,The smuggling will never end, so the deaths of
    parrots will never end, too many greedy parties. So for all the
    people who post, you wont be keeping your pets are full of it.
    No one is going to force you to hand over your pets..............
