Interesting development in Colorado. If you had a nonnative amphibian as a pet, and for whatever reason couldn’t keep it any longer, the Colorado Division of Wildlife was recommending that you freeze it rather than release it into the wild. Now the American Veterinarian Medical Association has weighed in, saying it can’t support the freezing death sentence. The Colorado authorities are now saying freezing should only be the last resort, and that people need to make the extra effort of finding a new home for the pet.
