Tigers like this one will no longer be  legally treated as captive house pets in West Virginia.

According to a news story , “The West Virginia legislature has passed a bill that would prohibit the possession of dangerous wild animals in the state.” Under this bill, future ownership of wild animals, such as wild cats, bears, primates, venomous and constrictor snakes, and alligators, would be prohibited. The legislation has been sent to Governor Tomblin for his signature.

Take Action: West Virginia residents, contact your governor and urge him to sign the Dangerous Wild Animals Act into law. Residents of other states, make sure your state has adequate laws to protect its citizens against the unregulated ownership of wild animals.
