Deadline approaching for registration of wild, dangerous animals
The Ohio Department of Agriculture is reminding owners of dangerous wild animal that a new state law passed in June requires the registration of their animals before Nov. 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 Jan.1, 2014. Failure to register and microchip by Nov. 5 will disqualify the owner from permit eligibility.
The registration forms must be printed, signed and returned to the department no later than Nov. 5. Forms that do not include microchip serial numbers will not be considered complete.
