My Fox Philly Hits Hamburg (airs May 4)

Monday, April 27th, 2009

On Saturday I had a chance to spend the day with Fox News’ Claudia Gomez at the Northern Berks Reptile Show in Hamburg, Pennsylvania.   Hamburg is a hot show, one of few left in the United States where dealers sell venomous reptiles along with standard fare.  We had a lot of fun and got good footage of animals and dealers, and Claudia got to talk to the founder of the website NO HR 669, a key effort to block the recent house bill outlawing not only potential invasive species but also many of the most common animals in the pet world.  I had a chance to sign some books at Larry Kenton’s table.


Claudia was pretty up front with me that she didn’t intend to hold any big pythons during her visit (she gave that task to me :-)), but the next thing I knew I turned around and found Claudia holding an alligator.  Crikey!    Claudia’s report airs Monday, May 4 on Fox 29.
