Has anyone in the United States yet heard of H.R. 669?
It is called the Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act and could entirely wipe out our pet industry and our right as citizens of the US to own most common pets, including all fish except goldfish, dogs, cats, and some farm animals.
Imagine a country where the only fish you could legally keep is goldfish?

Its time for all of us to write to our congressmen ASAP!
If this bill passes they could enact it before the end of 2009 so there is no time to waste. It is currently sitting with the 111th Assembly of Congress and due for vote during their 1st session. It was introduced in January of 2009.
I'm off to write to my congressman right now!
