A Melbourne Nightclub Paraded Reptiles Around to Guests. We Cannot Tolerate This Animal Abuse!

Reptiles are sensitive creatures, and while they're not the typical image of animals who get abused, they can suffer at the hands of human beings, too. Reptiles are especially sensitive to vibrations and loud music, meaning that crowded nightclubs are one of the worst possible places to bring them.

But that is exactly what one Australian nightclub did. 

A nightclub in South Yarra shared images on social media of patrons holding and posing with a baby crocodile and snakes during an event. After rightful backlash, the photos were removed from the venue's account, but there is no evidence that anyone involved learned their lesson. Who is to say the same venue won't do the same thing again in the future?

Sign now to tell Ingrid Stitt to launch a public information campaign about the correct way to treat native reptiles!

Reptiles are not meant for human entertainment, and the public must be educated on how events like this can be harmful to snakes and crocodiles. Victoria Minister for Environment Ingrid Stitt should launch a public information campaign to prevent this kind of tragic event from happening again in the future!
