As of January 6th, Governor Strickland signed a new law into effect just days before leaving office banning the animals that have long been discussed in Ohio.
The new Governor-elect Kasich will review the law before making it permanent but is expected to keep it in place.
There are mixed opinions regarding exotic pet laws with opposers citing American freedom and proponents for protecting the public. Many Ohioans are excited about this law change because of the recent bear attack on a young man in Columbia Station, Ohio.
What are your thoughts on banning dangerous exotic animals?
