Feb, 02 2007 – 1:20 AM

VANCOUVER/CKNW(AM980) – Exotic animal, owners, buyers and sellers – watch out! Vancouver’s going to make it harder for you to deal in wild animals.

Vancouver City Council has unanimously passed a motion banning people from keeping certain exotic and wild animals as pets and banning businesses from selling them. They’ve also requested Mayor Sam Sullivan write a letter to the Union of BC Municipalities to consider a Province-wide ban.

Banned animals include such creatures as bears, large constrictor snakes, hyenas and alligators. Businesses will be prohibited from selling everything from elephants and birds of prey to venomous insects.

Council has also approved banning the use of exotic and wild animals in performances and shows.
