Re: Oregon law changes for Native species

So apparently I missed TG's reply when I posted. She knows more about laws than I do, so if she says that Delaware doesn't actually grant the exotic animal permits I'll believe it. I've heard Maine is the same way.

Jane Goodall and animals other than chimps is like physicists in fields other than physics.

Re: Oregon law changes for Native species

Delaware seems to allow most things with permits, permits can be for individuals, and the permit requirements seem to be reasonable. I guess Florida's actually less restrictive though, since Florida allows more things without permits. Nebraska seems to allow pretty much everything with no permit. Ar...

Re: Oregon law changes for Native species

While some non-native bird species are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (most bird species native to the UK are covered by it, which is something I only know because I once sat down and read the full list and saw birds like jackdaws, chaffinches, and hoopoes on it), neither starlings or...

Re: Oregon law changes for Native species

@Nimwey: Based on what I've seen, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Delaware seem to be the best states for letting one keep whatever exotics one might want. Florida is a close second, but is also Florida. In terms of what you want, constrictors are legal in most states, and AFAIK all states will let you keep...

Re: ***ALERT*** OREGON FISH AND WILDLIFE TO BAN COMMON EXOTICS

Of course there are animal rights groups pushing it. These days whenever an exotic ban comes up you know HSUS had a major hand in it.

Re: Oregon

It actually makes perfect sense to me. The fact that most states ban captive-bred native species out of rabies concerns but not non-natives and based the ban on whether they're raised for fur (because opossums totally transmit rabies) is what baffles me.

Re: Passing Pro-Exotic laws

REXXANO covers all animals but has a really unprofessional website written in a tone that sounds almost conspiracy-theoretical. SAOVA seems to me like the best all-purpose group currently. I don't know if there's actually hunters in the group (since hunters are much more numerous than us and have th...

Barbets

Toucans are a specialized family within the clade Ramphastides adapted to a fruit-intensive diet in South America. Four other families--two in the Americas, one in Africa, one in Asia--are collectively known as barbets. Barbets are generally less specialized than toucans, eating both fruit and insec...

Re: Red Marble found - Franklin Massachusetts

Are there states in New England that allow pet foxes? When I was looking at laws it looked like Rhode Island and Maine allowed a lot of things with permits, but I'm not sure if foxes are among them. The other four New England states (and New York) seemed to ban pretty much everything and don't allow...

Re: Predator-proof aviaries?

For me that problem founders on having dogs. I'm not a fan of dogs; particularly not the larger breeds. On the other hand, I could try it with geese.

Re: More Anti-Propaganda

Something I've wondered since joining but never enough to ask about is why our lists of legal animals--which you keep diligently up-to-date--is only accessible to people who join the forum. That seems like information it would be useful for casual visitos. I think it's possible that Born Free are ju...

Re: Predator-proof aviaries?

I've never heard of squirrels killing birds. I'm sure they do (or at least they would eat eggs and chicks), but they seem to be less omnivorous than rats are.

Re: Collecting Gambian pouched rats in Key Largo?

Mousebirds are easy to keep and breed, and imports are still legal, and yet they're very difficult to find in the US because several major breeders got out of the business almost all at once, and nobody wants to go through the expense of importing new bloodlines for a bird that's similar to a cockat...

Re: Predator-proof aviaries?

Both of those are neat ideas, thanks! I've actually seen aviaries on posts like that at a bird store in Florida. Posts like that wouldn't stop a squirrel for a minute, but rats might be weaker climbers and I'd be amazed if weasels, cats, or coons could scale it. Martens might but we don't have those...
