New Ohio Exotic Animal Law Leads to Lawsuit

We have written in the past about the new Ohio exotic animal law, which followed the October 2011 tragedy in which a Zanesville man released dozens of dangerous animals before committing suicide.

Last month, four owners filed a lawsuit challenging the new law.  The first hearing was held yesterday, and U.S. District Judge George Smith has ruled that the Humane Society may join the state in defending the law.
