People kept arguing that red and gray/arctic are legal in NY long as you claim it's for an agricultural purpose. So I wrote to get confirmation of what I could already tell from reading the law. To be considered Agricultural you must be USDA or have a permit from the agricultural department. You can not get one without any permit or license, so there is no loophole that lets you have them as pets. I have updated the NY state post with the email info from the official. You have to get a permit or be USDA. There is no pet permit. You can not have one with no permit or license and claim it's agricultural.

Please do not get an animal just because someone on the web says it's legal, even if that happens to be me, even if they live in that state. Check the laws and call or write for yourself or you could get an illegal animal and have it confiscated.

That makes a lot of sense. I always figured it was the case; common sense dictates it.

I do remember speaking to a man who kept a few pet foxes in NY and attained a permit because he harvested and sold their shed fur and urine. But that was a few years ago.
5 Dogs, 2 cats, 2 leopard geckos, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. :)

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, arctic fox, gray fox, bat eared fox, fennec fox, mink, muntjac deer, owl (any species).

Yeah, a person would have to ask the ag dept what is required with a fur farm permit to see if you could still get by, by not killing them and just selling other products from them.

So breeding or exhibit as your reason for having them needs DEC license. Other agricultural reasons like "fur farm", selling products you have to go through Ag.

Either way it's not a case where you can get them and not follow any rules just by claiming it's agricultural, like some were saying.
