https://au.news.yahoo.com/video/wat...ghting-for-life-after-being-bitten-by-taipan/ Following this incident in QLD there are comments all over social media saying its all too easy to get a licence to own/keep one of these highly venomous animals. I myself have considered keeping ven's but having young grand children really makes it a no brainer for me though I was surprised that I can get a licence to keep in Victoria with NO previous experience handling anything venomous, no qualifications required, no course that must be attended, no minimum supervised hours handling, NOTHING. Pay a fee, send off for a licence and next week I could go buy a RBB, Brown, Taipan, Colletts whatever I like. Is this not totally ridiculous? Do the rules not need to be changed? Thoughts below. Please keep it sensible, no fighting your corner at the expense of healthy debate.
