wild, exotic, and endangered animals are not and should not be allowed to be pets. those in Ohio who allowed the law to lapse which afforded at least some minimal protection to these animals should face criminal charges. you hear that governor?

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Bill because you have done so within the last week.

I saw it on the News. So sad that poor guy killed himself because he couldn't afford to feed them anymore and I think he let the Animals go to try and fend for themselves. But I think the Police should have tried to catch them not just go Yahoo on these Innocent creatures. I was surprised to see Jack Hanna, whom I used to like saying yes they should be killed.
