The owner of a pet store in Rotterdam where 140 dead animals were found in June will be going to jail, if what the justice department wants will happen. The prosecutor demanded on Thursday at the court in Rotterdam 3.5 years in prison, including one year probation.

The man is charged with lack of care for the animals. The dead animals in the shop included dingoeslizardschinchillasjerboasgerbils,rattlesnakes and turtles. The prosecution suspects that the animals died of hunger and thirst.

Reptiles fair

The accused is also said to have stolen about 20 protected animals. Among them were Indian pythonsboa constrictors and royal pythons. The animals were stolen from a reptile fair in April. The animals, which live in warm areas, the day after the theft were found dead or dying in a car.

The prosecution also asked the court for a specific measure. That means that the owner for the next ten years would not be allowed to sell, export or own animals any more.
