That is a **proposed** ban on future purchases, not a ban on current ownership.

As the very next line states: "A person who owns a dangerous exotic animal on the effective date of this section shall register the animal with the division of wildlife not later than sixty days after that date."

Do not assume that the proposed law defines all exotic animals as dangerous, but rather that they propose regulating private possession of those exotic animals that ARE dangerous. Like large constrictor snakes.

Check the Ohio DNR website for more information.

This is why this bill is not actually law yet. Legal definitions will have to be clarified.
