On September 18, 2019 the NYSDEC filed a proposal to change the "Dangerous Wildlife" Law
(6 NYCRR 180.1), to include a large amount of additional species without foundation to support such a restriction. Because this proposal was erroneously put through the rule making system instead of the traditional legislative system in which an assessment of the bill in becoming a law is debated by the representatives of the state, the rule will be surely adopted and probably even in a more restrictive version.
We would like to advocate all exotic and wild animal lovers and keepers, especially owners, to resist such illegal actions by a public agency by ignoring the passage of the "regulation" due to the abuse of the system by the Department.
Interestingly, we became aware of such a move (which can be considered civilian resistance) from past cases in which the NYSDEC refused to follow Court orders which were not issued in the favor of their selfish agenda. It's about time, the public levels the playing field and subject to the same rules of behavior as the government. Who can win a fight when she's the only one in a fight with her hands tied behind her back?
