Regarding the pending ban by Ohio's former governor Ted Strickand, please read this document. I'd encourage everyone to make a call and send this letter by email, as instructed! IMPORTANT!!!

And why does this ban give "Law Enforcement Officers" the right to keep "exotic/wild" animals? So, they're saying that a "Police Officer" is more qualified to keep an exotic/wild animal than someone that has studied, bred, and maintained them safely for over 25 years? Just like every other law they pass on things that people enjoy, there always has to be exceptions to the rules. Just last week, the Columbus Zoo had some kind of animals escape, and they're supposed to be the experts! lmao
