This is sickening. I hope they do catch these so and sos and throw the book at them and one also has to wonder about the welfare of the animals. What I am left wondering about though, is could these reptiles have been stolen to order.

More than likely ... I bet they wouldn't have been stolen if they were normal's. I'm glad I've had most of mine chipped. At least there is a possibility of them being found and returned...

How I hate the injustice of someone stealing another person's property, but when it come to stealing their much prized and loved animals.... grrrrrrrr, really really hope that these scum bags are caught and the animals returned to their rightful owners.

It is not just that. There is the psychological trauma it causes afterwards just knowing that someone has had their slimy nasty hands all over your things. Like what did they touch that they did not take. These things are never the same again and the whole place can feel violated. I got burgled when I was in my old flat and I had to get rid of everything that they may have touched as it felt like it had been violated. Fortunately they could not get at the snakes as they were locked up but they took some personal things and that was bad enough. I hope those snakes are found safe.
