Met with Supervisor Diane Jacob and the director of animal services yesterday, along with me were Dr Kaye Henderson (vet) Lynn Moore (dog trainer) Jim Conrad (VP of the SD wildlife federation) We were all allowed to speak uninterrupted and state our concerns The director of animal services brought along a lawyer for the county who voiced concerns about other counties and their ordinances, he misspoke several times about the facts and laws pertaining counties and I had to correct him on each issue as he was trying to build a case against allowing it, this made him look somewhat uninformed. Jacob listened to everyone and in the end felt the issue was more about personal choice than about the snakes, she stated that she felt the situation should be corrected to allow training and said she could make no promises but she would take it to Bill Horn and if he is on board they will bring it to the council. So there you go all you folks that voiced your concerns got their attention and helped bring this to where it is today. We still have away to go and nothing is for sure I feel we have it headed in the right direction. Thank you to all that spoke up and please keep up the pressure, if we get this in front of the council I will again ask everyone to speak up and tell their supervisor how they feel about this very important issue for dog owners.
