“Thank you! I commute over an hour to do my PhD and was planning to leave Colorado afterward because of this law. I won’t have to leave now.”– @JTFouquier via Twitter
“A step in the right direction. These are wonderful animals when socialized and raised in a loving environment.”– @thegaryramsey via Twitter
