So a good friend of mine who is a little to trusting in people purchased two pythons off a Facebook page. The seller dropped them off at her house, she handed over cash but the seller said the computer wasn't working so he couldn't print off the paperwork till the next day...dodgy right? The paperwork never arrived and the seller has ignored all her messages and phone calls so far. After reading a couple of similar threads where the advice was to contact Derm and explain and that the reptiles would be put on her licence I decided to call them on her behalf. ive been told by Derm that the pythons will be confiscated and destroyed as they are most likely wild caught (don't see how they can prove that) and will NOT be rehomed under any circumstances. I called national parks and wildlife service and was told the same thing by them. are there any other legal avenues that can be taken where the snakes are put on her license as this is an absolutely b.s. Outcome for someone who made a silly mistake not to mention taking the life of a protected animal for no fault of its own. Has anyone experienced this same problem in qld with a better outcome? The pythons have not been surrended thus far and won't be if they are to be killed. I've told her I'll buy the pythons from her if I can't find a way for her to keep them herself, legally. Cheers.
