Ohio became the most recent state to regulate exotic animals under legislation enacted in 2012.
Ohio’s 2011 “Zanesville incident,” where 50 exotic animals were killed by state officers after they were released by their owner, brought attention to state and federal laws regarding the care of wild and exotic animals. Many states already have laws regarding ownership of these animals. The types of exotic animals allowed or prohibited in states vary greatly, but most frequently prohibited are big cats (lions, tigers, cheetahs), venomous snakes, nonhuman primates (such as monkeys and apes) and bears.
