Just a warning for aps members to be extremely careful when lending animals to friends/family for breeding projects or loans etc... As I've just been caught out with lending 4 of my snakes as a breeding loan to someone I thought I could trust. But now it seems this person has decided my animals are too good to return and is keeping them. Yep... done the police thing and they can't do anything as they refused them entry onto their home, so the police said to call nsw parks & wildlife, called them including qld parks and neither of them can do anything even with proof of ownership (movement advices etc), and they just keep passing the buck by stating this should be a matter for the nsw police... what the? So at the moment I'm asking myself... if I borrowed someone's reptiles for a breeding loan, took them back to my house, kept putting off the correct paperwork that needed to be filled/signed and returned to parks and wildlife, decided to keep the reptiles and even if the original owner of the reptiles could prove that they were only lent as a breeding loan to me, has the paperwork to prove they are his animals and do not belong to me, there is nothing the police or wildlife services can do? After a month now, I've pretty much come to the conclusion that I'm never going to see my animals again. I've exhausted every avenue and it's like there is a technical hitch in the law that does not allow me to get back what is rightfully mine. So please be careful people, I'd hate to see or hear of this happening to anyone else. This has now got me asking about the paperwork we religously fill out (the only means we have to prove a certain reptile belongs to us) everytime we sell or move a reptile to another address or buyer, this is meant to prove you and/or the seller are the rightful owners/sellers, so in a situation like this... it's worth what???
