What are people thinking. MY goodness.


Snake-handler Bradley McDonald kept more than 350 reptiles in his Kingsgrove home, but only 184 of them survived his care.

The RSPCA said 170-200 more animals, including snakes and lizards, were found dead inside Mr McDonald's property on Saturday.

He now faces two years' jail and a $22,000 fine for each dead animal, as well as a 10-year jail sentence and $110,000 fine if found to have breached the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, authorities said yesterday.
