Ok, So, Ive done what research I can and I need help, and ideas... Story: Said person works for a chain of pawn shops and found that someone from another store has allowed someone to pawn a Ball Python, its in the back sitting in inventory, no light and no bedding in a little bitty tank, the guys that had it didn't even know what to feed it. This person has been going by and checking its temp and added bedding, but is outraged that it would be allowed to live in sub par conditions. I'm trying to find a city code or ordinance or SOMETHING, that would allow this person to be a whistle-blower without getting in trouble themselves from their company. Its in Texas which has recently enacted a law baring the sale of some species, including all constricting snakes, but I haven't found the actual law yet, apparently it allows some counties and or cities to decline to enforce said laws. I cant find anything specific about snakes in the Waco city ordinance code, but I plan on contacting the Texas department of Wildlife tomorrow to see if they have any insight. I know y'all are awesome at finding out information about these kinds of things, so when I hit a roadblock, I just had to call in the chickens. This is disturbing to me on many levels other then the mistreatment, ball pythons usually retail at around 50-80 and the pawn shop gave 75 for it. I'm thinking that the person who pawned it fed a line of crap about it being special, when from what Ive been told it has no special markings or traits and the pawn shop actually fell for it, apparently up to a district management level. And what about the guy who pawned it in the first place? So, anyone got any ideas?
