State should ban owning dangerous animals

By Letters to the Editor

Kelly Ann Walz of Monroe County was mauled to death by a captive bear recently.

Also on her property were a mountain lion and a tiger.

While Pennsylvania’s laws about private ownership of wild animals are stricter than some states, they leave a lot to be desired.

I would like to see a complete ban on these dangerous animals — for public safety and the welfare of the animals, who are not engineered to spend their lives in confinement.
