    Because of the perceived danger of such animals to humans.

    To ensure public safety as well as the humane treatment of the animals themselves. Ohio is one of the top states with exotic animal sales and auctions.

    An incident involving a bear got a lot of attention in 2010; it killed a trainer in Lorain County.  There have also been 20 instances of wild animals breaking loose since 2003.  It’s problematic because of the safety of the folks who have to catch those animals, and also because it puts the state in a position where they either have to take care of the animal until they can find a suitable place for it, or kill the animal.
