Kansas "Tiger bill" on its Way to Governor

 

 

The tiger bill is on its way to Governor Sebelius.

The measure requires owners of exotic animals to keep them confined so that they can’t come in contact with people. It also makes it illegal to allow such animals to run at large and requires their owners to carry $250,000 in liability insurance.

The bill was drafted as a response to a fatal incident in August 2005. Haley Hilderbrand, a 17-year-old Labette County High School senior, was bitten by a Siberian tiger at the Lost Creek Animal Sanctuary in Mound Valley, southwest of Parsons.

The Senate passed the bill last week, and the House approved its

version yesterday, after making amendments. The Senate voted 38-to-two today to accept the amendments, sending the bill to Sebelius.
