Legalize Hedgehogs as Pets in the State of Pennsylvania

This petition had 97 supporters

Hi everyone. I am a Penn State student, and this petition is part of a project for my class. However, I chose this topic because I do want to make owning hedgehogs as pets become legal in the state of Pennsylvania. Hedgehogs are legal pets in most of the states in the USA. Some states, however, have bans on the ownership of hedgehogs as pets, such as Pennsylvania. They are banned mostly because they are deemed an "invasive species." Yet, pets such as ferrets, guinea pigs, and chinchillas are legal pets, so why not hedgehogs? I believe that this ban should be lifted so that animal lovers can own a pet hedgehog in this state, since I feel as though there is no potential threat or harm in owning one of these beautiful creatures.
