I think that PETA is going to have a very tough time proving their case. This is really nothing more than a nuisance lawsuit, IMHO.

Nuisance lawsuit are the bread and butter of most animal rights groups.

The goal isn't to win, it's to drive up Zoo Med's legal costs and force them into bankruptcy, or at least increase their insurance premiums/cost of doing business. It's no different than the lawsuits against gun manufacturers for criminal misuse of their products.

Presumably another goal is to increase PETA's own cred with their financial backers -- 'Look! We are taking down the bad guys! Help us continue this by entering your credit card info below!'

The fact that a news outlet would publish the story without seeking and including a statement from the defendant suggests that the free advertising for PETA's ignorance campaign was an expected bonus.

I think it has been well established that the mainstream media is not our friend.

I have to agree with PETA on this one.. I love Zoomed and think they're one of the best, but they do recommend enclosures that are WAY TOO SMALL..

REALLY????????

Why would anyone depend on, or follow the recommendation of a manufacturer on what size enclosure is needed for a certain critter/reptile?????

Common sense has always been key at my facility, and has been or over 50 years, and the offspring we produce year after year is proof, and have NEVER, or ever would follow any recommendation of any manufacturer of enclosures.


PETA can take a flying leap........

IMO, & Just my 2 cents.......
