Oct 21, 2011 — The AVMA issued a reminder to the public that individuals should never own wild and/or exotic animals. Since 2006, an AVMA policy has urged lawmakers to ban private ownership of wild and exotic animals because they pose a significant risk to public health, domestic animals and native ecosystems and species.
