You bring up a ver good point in that Tigers are magnitudes of order more dangerous than Burmese. Burmese aren't really so much dangerous to the public as they are simply scary to those uninformed. Burmese could be dangerous to their owners but if they got loose they actually move very slowly and are very easy to run away from. Yes there is a minescule chance of one ambushing you but that's minescule. How much money do we want to spend on a minescule problem? Mostly a loose bumese would present a danger to small to medium sized pets and wild animals. They are not likely to even be where people will go, they will sit deep in the bushes most of the time. And this is Ohio we're talking about, even if it doesn't get retrieved it's going to die in the winter time.

It is appropriate for bumese owners to point these things out because this law doesn't so much regulate dangerous animals as it is a knee jerk reaction to scary and unfamiliar animals.
