Lions, Tigers, Bears (And Wolves) Oh My! Ohio Task Force Seeks To Ban Ownership of Exotic Pets

Filed under: PolitikPetsLionsBearTiger TigerMonkeyWolflizards

After an Ohio man released 56 lions, tigers, bears, and wolves (and a couple of monkeys that were eaten) on his farm and killed himself, a task force is trying to ban ownership of exotic pets.

This ban would include lizards and other smaller reptiles as well.

48 of the animals released with killed while the remaining six live in zoos. The new bill would require registration for all exotics pets by 2014.

While the bill is picking up steam, many legislators and executives are hesistant about it.

Many cite that businesses would foreclose and many pet owners would be forced to kill their pets.

Polly Britton of the Ohio Association of Animal Owners states the following:

I know the actual bill will look nothing like the summary…They’re grandfathering in owners of these exotics and giving them two years to either comply or dispose of the animals. Now, what’s that owner suppose to do if they can’t comply with all the restrictions and regulations? I’ll tell you; they’ll have to kill those animals. This is their way of making sure all these animals are dead.

Legislators plan on the bill being ready to present in 2012.

Four Young Men Charged In Theft Of Lion Carcass

Filed under: Legal MattersLionsCrazzzzy

After hearing of the wild animals loose in Ohio, four young idiots men rushed to the scene.

They came across a dead lion, where people were gathering around, and taking pictures.

They decided they could use a lion to make a rug or stuff it or other disgusting things, so they struggled to load it into the back of their Jeep.

When police arrived on the scene, they stopped the would-be thieves, recovered the lion's body, and charged the men with misdemeanor theft.

Some people are just plain weird.

And now they face up to six months in jail and a $1000 fine if convicted.

Doesn't seem worth it to us.

When cops responded to a landlord-tenant dispute they found a freezer full of frozen mangoes…

…and two dead parrots and a dead cougar!

The 73-year-old man said he didn't remember how the animal died.

The man has many wild and exotic animals on his property, including exotic birds, monkey, lemurs and cougars.

Why he was keeping dead ones in a freezer, no one knows.

What's with all the dead animal hoarding?

Some people are just plain weird.

Filed under: PETABearWildlifeLeopard

Leopard

After the release (and then slaughter) of the 50 exotic animals in Ohio, law makers have been swayed to make some changes when it comes to exotic animal ownership.

One person, apparently unswayed, is the wife of the deceased man who freed the animals.

She wants four of the six surviving animals, a grizzly bear and three leopards, back in her custody.

The animals are in temporary quarantine at the Columbus Zoo.

PETA Wants Warning In New Zoo Movie

Filed under: Film FlickersPETAZoo

tiger

PETA is urging director Cameron Crowe to include a warning about the dangers of owning wild animals.

His new movie, We Bought A Zoo features a family, with no real training, taking care of wild animals.

PETA fears that people will think that it takes nothing more than a lot of "heart" to take care of exotic animals.

Due to the recent Ohio tragedy, where around 50 exotic animals were shot dead, PETA released a statement:

"We Bought a Zoo conveys the misleading and downright dangerous message that no special knowledge—just a lot of heart—is needed to run a zoo.

As the tragedy in Ohio gruesomely illustrates, wild animals aren't Disney characters. They have very special needs that all too often aren't met by people who buy them on a whim because they think it would be 'cool' to own a tiger."

You hear that people? Just because you want a tiger, doesn't mean you have the time, training or resources to take care of it.

And even if you do you still shouldn't get one. Wild animals belong in the wild.
