For a list of state regulations. Always contact your state department to verify legality! We do not make claims to this list being accurate though we strive for it to be. Changes in laws happen more frequently than we can keep up with and your regulators may interpret the law differently than we did.

PA is a very anti-exotic state but you may be able to get a fur bearer permit for foxes and raccoons. Pat is very familiar with their laws but here is the summery, ripped from born free"

Summary of Law: No person may keep exotic wildlife without first receiving a permit from the wildlife commission. Exotic wildlife includes, but is not limited to all bears, coyotes, lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, cougars, wolves, and any crossbreed of these animals, which have similar characteristics in appearance or features. However, there are no state requirements for reptiles.

Citation: 34 PA. CONS. STAT. ANN. §2961 and §2963 ... 47toc.html" onclick=";return false;

Permit requires 2 years experience.

Here is the steps to getting a permit for animals that are indigenous to Pa:

The PGC can be hard to deal with and are known for their inconsistent explanations.

here are the steps needed:
1. 2-year experience with foxes.
This will have to be a letter from "supposedly" someone with a menagerie permit. but, I think experience from other sources might work.
The letter has to be somewhat in depth on the hours and type of methods used on the fox.

2. A letter from your township stating that you have permission from them to have a fox.

3. Pen built according to pgc's specs.

4. An application from the pgc (call Harrisburg to be connected to the permits department) mail in app

wait for game officer to inspect pen

once your permit is mailed to you, you can legally get your fox
