Petco Animal Supplies / selling live rats for snake consumption
I work at a Petco in PA. I understand that many reptiles have particular dietary needs, and need live crickets, mealworms, etc. But I absolutely DO NOT understand why live rats and mice should be sold as food for snakes. I dated a herpatologist many years ago and he always bought frozen, thawed animals for his snakes. Even his larger snakes got whole chickens - feathers and all - that were frozen and thawed, because it was safer for the animals. I recommend this article for amateur snake owners...
I hope Petco changes its policy regarding this issue. And as a former rat owner it breaks my heart that they suffer a frightening, tortuous death.
