Wild Animal Ban Expansion Considered

MN Wild Animal Ban Expansion Considered

 

(AP) Austin, Minn. The Mower County Board will hold a public hearing later this month to discuss a possible ban on certain wild animals. It would expand on a year-long ban on bringing more wild cats, bears, wolves and primates into the county.

 

The one-year ban was approved last May. Sheriff Terese Amazi requested the moratorium after a tiger at a Racine’s BEARCAT Hollow animal park bit a girl in 2001. The incident set off a chain of events that resulted in killing the tiger so it could be tested for rabies.

 

Forty-one animals, including lions, tigers, bears and cougars, from BEARCAT were taken to the Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary in Spearfish, S.D. BEARCAT has since been sold.

 

 

 

 

For the cats,
