ODA URGES DANGEROUS WILD ANIMAL OWNERS TO REGISTER
New state law requires registration, microchip by November 5
REYNOLDSBURG, OH (Oct. 31, 2012) – The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) today reminds dangerous wild animal owners that a new state law passed in June requires the registration of their animals in less than one week before November 5. Failure to register animals by the deadline can result in a first degree misdemeanor for the first offense, and a fifth degree felony for each subsequent offense.
Additionally, timely registration is a requirement for anyone who wishes to receive a permit to keep any dangerous wild animal past January 1, 2014. Failure to register and microchip by November 5 will disqualify the owner from permit eligibility.
The registration forms, which are available on the Department’s website at http://www.agri.ohio.gov/TopNews/DangerousWildAnimalAct/ must be printed, signed and returned to the department no later than November 5, 2012.
