My state has recently passed a law that makes it mandatory to obtain a permit for owning a wild animal. Before this residents of my state could own lions, tigers, bears, (oh my). The person must take classes on being a responsible owner, have the right facility, and pay over a chunk of money. I have always thought, personally, that snake owners should be made to obtain a permit. But what do you think? Do you think all wild animals warrant this step? How about parrots? Gotcha.
