Got a fun little email from the ASPCA today pushing a new bill that would negatively effect exotics in Ohio. Just figured I'd go ahead and share.

And apparently none of their fancy graphics are going to pop up on here but you get the idea.

Prevent Tragedies
Like Zanesville


Urge Your State Senator to Pass S.B. 310!



Dear Ohio Animal Advocates,

Ohio is one of only a handful of states with virtually no regulations on wild/exotic animal pet ownership. Even before last year’s horrific incident in Zanesville, this oversight has led to tragedy for both people and animals: The Associated Press found that along with having some of the nation's weakest restrictions on exotic pets, Ohio has among the highest number of injuries and deaths caused by them. This is partially due to the fact that the state has become a haven for breeders and dealers of these animals.

It’s time to stop the insanity! The ASPCA supports Senate Bill 310, which is currently pending in your state legislature in Columbus. If passed, it would prohibit keeping many wild, dangerous and exotic species of animals as pets (effective 2014). The full Ohio Senate may vote on the bill as soon as this Wednesday, April 25!


What You Can Do
Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center online to quickly email your state senator and ask him or her to support S.B. 310 to ban keeping wild animals as pets. Your senator will likely vote on the bill this week, so there’s no time to lose.

Thank you for defending wild and exotic animals, Ohio!
