SHUT DOWN REPTILE OCEAN

First of all I'm sure all of you people around this small little town know about this place, how it was shut down for a couple years and reopened again... Have you guys actually put one feet in that store?
The humidity is disgusting for all the animals, i understand if it was just reptiles but its not.. They got hamsters and bunnies, and a whole lotta birds.

First time i went there there was at least 10 hamsters per 5 gallon aquarium tanks. Some were dead, actually being eaten by other of those rodents, Also one had a huge tumor on its head and pus was coming out of it... I told the worker and he giggled, This is no situation to be laughing at. I just shut my mouth and left thinking something might be done

I went back a couple weeks later , to find out that the rodents were still in the same situation and that the one with a tumor had passed away. As i walk into the small animal room, is rabbit, but i mean.. A sick rabbit , diarrhea  all over the cage, it had trouble breathing... and i told another worker and he laughed and he said it was "probably going to die tonight"... is that the right way to treat a sick animal?.. They should be put away from the public and away from other animals. And also brought to the vet.

Another time i went and  there was a dog, one of his dog , that could barely stand up, there was puke and diarrhea all over the place.. and the worker thought it was actually pretty normal, I told him that he needed to see the vet immediately...

I purchased a corn snake from there and it was pretty calm , which is why purchased it cause i never had a reptile before so thinking if its calm i'll get used to it. They told me that it was in good health and it had eaten 4 days before and his next meal would be in about 3 days and i got some frozen pinkies. 3 days later i try to feed my snake but no luck the snake did not wanna eat, i called up my friend who knows a lot about snakes and he told me maybe he was in a stressed , or maybe his environment or the heat wasn't right, he came and checked it out and said everything was perfect and there was no reason that the snake wasn't eating but he told me to wait another week. At the end of that week i tried feeding it again, he ate it but he puked it out after a couple hours.

I started noticing how lazy he was getting he wasn't moving around that much. I called the worker from there and he told me too bring it over so he could examine it and so I did. When i got there and he started examining my snake he tells me that my snake has a broken back. I replied a broken back? how is that even possible? He jumps to conclusion that i purposely broke his back possibly by stepping on it and that i wasn't allowed in that store no more because i mistreated animals and purposely killed this snake. I argued with him that i barely took the snake out of the tank and that he was always like that.. I even had pictures in the store before I got it and you see the tip of his tailed hanging , i had proof that it was like that before i purchased it. I understand that he was  trying to hide the fact that he sold me a 115$ SICK snake that later died.

The way his animals are treated is not right , And i will fight against them till something is done, Sick animals should not be around healthy ones. They should not  even be up for adoption. I am disgusted by that place and will no longer step a feet in there ever again..
