DANGEROUS ANIMALS
West Virginia releases proposed list of animals too dangerous to own, seeks public comment

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, July 3, 2014 7:55 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The public has an opportunity to weigh in on the state's proposed list of dangerous animals.

The list developed by the Wild and Dangerous Animal Board includes chimpanzees, crocodiles and giraffes.

Ownership of animals on the list will be prohibited. But residents who already own creatures on the list can keep them if they get a state permit.

The list is contained in a proposed legislative rule filed Wednesday. It must be approved by the Legislature.

The public comment period runs through Aug. 1.

Department of Agriculture spokesman Butch Antolini tells the Charleston Daily Mail that state officials expect to receive many comments from the public.
