ABC-TV “20/20” had a report about the Weyauwega Animal Haven Zoo and how easy it is to obtain a wild animal.
The owner of Animal Haven Zoo was willing to give the reporter a tiger, maybe two, asking or requiring little or no credentials.
In fact, the report said there are very few restrictions on obtaining a wild animal in Wisconsiin. How can this be?
I cannot believe there are no regulations in obtaining a wild animal to keep as a pet. There are so many rules out there; this definitely is a public hazard.
Steps must be taken to ensure public safety.
This must be addressed and taken seriously at the next Waupaca County Board meeting.
