Ohio contemplates ban on exotic pets

Posted on October 25th, 2011 No Comments

Following the recent tragic events in Ohio, when Terry Thompson released dozens of large, exotic animals from his private zoo into the public, lawmakers are debating whether or not the state should ban all private ownership of exotic animals.

The four hour meeting with the state committee was closed to media, but the director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium stated his strong position to outlaw private ownership of such pets. However, what qualifies as exotic was not clarified.

Opponents to the ban state that non-exotic animals, such as whitetail deer, are much more destructive and dangerous to Ohioans. They cite car-deer collision statistics. In Ohio, whitetail deer-related accidents caused four deaths and over $72 million in damages.
