VA Reptile Rescue just linked this story about a guy who poses as a fake herpetologist on Animal Planet and attempted to confiscate an entire collection without any legal authority, all while traumatizing this poor man's kids. Disgusting.

This story is just jaw-dropping. I have been to the Cape Fear Serpentarium personally several times. I absolutely love it there, the animals are beautiful. In fact, I'm probably going back to visit this year while I'm in North Carolina for a family vacation.

This Winston Card guy sounds totally worthless.

I don't understand why Danny allowed himself to be put in that position.

My guess is that they probably lied to him about the premise of it. From the title of the show, it seems like it would be about people who keep interesting pets. Technically "Living with Predators" is owning a house cat, or any dog. He probably thought it was just going to be people asking him about his collection, not accusing him of being a crazy snake hoarding psycho who was going to get himself killed.

Either way, they had no right to freak his kids out like that... That just seems like a low blow, even if it had been some type of intervention hosted by concerned friends.

I wonder if he wants my address. He's more than welcome to stop by. Can't promise that him or any of the witnesses, I men camera crew, will be seen again.

This Card guy must be some type of HSUS superhero. Dollar Store checkout man by day, world's greatest herpetologist by night.

Seems legit.

I can help dig holes! The show is stories of people who usually have an exotic that got out of hand and ended up hurting itself or someone else. Some people should not be allowed to keep an exotic if they don't know the full capability of the animal. But for someone who has done everything possible to keep both his family and his animals safe it is a joke for some crazy pathetic excuse of a human to come into that house and completely bash everything. It makes me mad how bad it also makes the snakes and other exotics look. :/

It's true. I feel bad for Danny just because they harassed him so badly that he could actually have gotten in trouble for threatening them. I'm glad he didn't, but he easily could have, given a TV network's vast and powerful legal department. Not to mention traumatizing his family, when he really is a responsible keeper.

And I will definitely help dig holes Very Happy

Interesting story. I cannot believe this guy had the balls (haha) to go to Danny's house and do what he did especially with Children involved. I hate to think that I used to be one of those crazy people that stereo-typed everyone that had reptiles. Glad I educated myself and can educate my child and her friends and family.

Yeah, I really respect Danny for shutting it down before things got worse. I don't know if I could have just walked away at that point. :/
