pTwo months before a perpetrator poured cleaning solvent on the Huntington Library’s corn snake, who lived on display in a glass enclosure, the library heralded the year of the snake with a Chinese Cultural Arts Celebration. Honoring the year of the snake, Friends of Animals is glad the library isn’t prompted to fill its aquarium with another snake who belongs in Nature./p
pExotic pets don’t fare well because wild animals, snakes included, are unable to have the freedom of full lives, and are too dependent on human care for their well-being and survival. Corn snakes feed on rodents and are persecuted out of ignorance./p
p Friends of Animals is offering $200.00 toward the identity of the individual who killed Peaches. We believe the person should be prosecuted under Connecticut’s anti-cruelty statute./p
