Very Excited About RF
Very well said, and an extremely important point I think many people forget. Show animals get sick, it happens, when it does you cut your losses and either treat or cull the animal, you don't ban the show because of an attendee who either didn't know their animals were ill or didn't care.SarahY said:ANY show/event is a risk :roll: If you want to keep your animals safe, you keep them at home. That goes for ANY gathering where animals are sharing airspace, even NMC shows.
That all depends on whoever is spoken to at the dept of fish and game and what they decide is ok at any given time...the way the law is written, technically any mammal (not bred within the state for a certain period of time) that's not a normal lab animal (rat or mouse), dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, or regular livestock animal, is illegal..........but it is enforced very wierdlyOften times there are other species of rodents like spiny mice and African Soft Furred rats, but those depend on the laws on PA, some years they're okay and others they're not. Lee Simms (I provided her email address) will be able to answer those questions for you, on legalities.
