Ohio Board To Meet On Rules For Exotic Animals


Ohio Board To Meet On Rules For Exotic Animals

A newly formed board created by Ohio’s law on exotic animals is slated to meet this week to discuss caging standards and requirements for dangerous wildlife.

The Dangerous and Restricted Animals Advisory Board plans to hold its first meeting Wednesday to set temporary housing rules for regulated animals, such as tigers, alligators and bears.

The panel will decide the proper size of the animals’ cages and how they should be maintained, among other rules. More permanent standards will be put in place when permits are required in 2014.

The law requires owners to register their exotic animals with Ohio officials by Nov. 5. If they don’t, owners could face a first-degree misdemeanor for the first offense, and a fifth-degree felony for each subsequent offense.


**NOTE-Anyone needing assistance to move their animals should make contact thru commenting and will pass the information along…we are networking as quickly as we can to help!!! Your information will be considered confidential!!!
