Born Free USA Exotic Animal Database sheds light on public safety issue
Born Free USA, a leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, says that a snake bite that sent a Fair Lawn, NJ man to the hospital in critical condition on Monday, is just one of thousands of unnecessary occurrences between wild and exotic animals and humans. Every year, captive wild animals kept as private “pets,” as well as in zoos and circuses, are involved in incidents that result in human injury or death. Millions of reptiles -- snakes and lizards -- in private possession pose severe safety risks to humans, including the transmission of deadly diseases, strangulations, and bites. Snakes are the most common “pet” reptiles - about 3 percent of U.S. households possess 7.3 million pet reptiles.

Today, these powerful economic development functions, while remaining separate divisions, have been united to balance the growth of new business with the revitalization of existing commerce.
No one believed it when I said I'd be bringing salmon to the next family party. "Are you getting it from Costco?" my aunt called out from the next room. "What? No, I'm making it." Everyone exchanged a series of not-so-subtle glances and immediately began discussing the weather. Never in the history of family get-togethers had I contributed anything more than sodas, flowers and cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. Now I was offering to prepare the main course for our Hanukkah dinner. My grandmother reluctantly agreed but sweetly added she'd make lasagna, or maybe a brisket.
I got up early this morning and thought of doing a Rotary makeup at the Allendale Rotary Club. When I reached my all wheel drive crossover, the ice was caked so thick that it was a problem trying to pry open any of the doors. This despite a remote door unlocker. Not to be daunted, I got out my telescoping scraper/cleaner and began to remove the crusted ice. With the engine on and the defroster blowing hot, it didn’t seem like too formidable a task. The clincher was when my ice scraper end broke. So much for Allendale and Rotary.
