does this help?

WOOSTER, Ohio — The agreement reached this summer between Ohio’s agriculture leaders, Gov. Ted Strickland and the Humane Society of the United States on the care of livestock still stands — at least according to the three main parties who formed it.

Ohio Governor-elect John Kasich was not part of the agreement, and has not yet announced his decision on its proposals. He is still putting together his administration and won’t take office until January.


Moving forward

But the parties in power say they are moving forward with what they agreed to do, some of which has a deadline of Dec. 31.

“Our commitment to the agreement wasn’t effected by the election,” said Joe Cornely, senior director of communications for Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.

He said Kasich’s stance is not yet known, and is something that will be up to him and his new staff.

“The agreement was a three-party deal and how Governor Kasich will choose to view the agreement, we have no idea,” Cornely said. “That will be entirely a question for his administration.”


Filling commitments

Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS, spoke about the agreement during a news conference at the statehouse Oct. 26. He called upon Strickland to enact legislation prohibiting the ownership of exotic animals in Ohio — one of the provisions in the agreement.

Pacelle said he didn’t expect action to come until after elections, after which he anticipated the governor will act on his promise.

He said any part of the agreement not fulfilled will break the agreement, and potentially bring about a farm animal ballot initiative — something the agreement was designed to prevent.

“We stated when the agreement was announced in this building that we wanted to see all of these reforms advanced by the end of the year,” he said. “And if they were, then we would not proceed with a farm animal welfare ballot measure.”


Decision to come

Strickland’s press secretary, Amanda Wurst, said the governor’s administration “will continue moving forward on every aspect of the agreement.”

Per the exotic animals, she said “the governor has said he is committed to ensuring rules are in place by the end of the year on the exotic (issue),” which could come in the form of an executive order

Just got this in a e-mail *note* I do not support the ban...!



Dear Ohio Animal Advocates,

Until about a month ago, Ohio was one of only a handful of states with virtually no regulations on wild/exotic animal pet ownership. This legal oversight has led to tragedy for both people and animals: The Associated Press found that along with having some of the nation's weakest restrictions on exotic pets, Ohio has among the highest number of injuries and deaths caused by them. This is partially due to the fact that the state has become a haven for breeders and dealers of these animals to set up shop.

As one of his last acts as governor, Ted Strickland issued an executive order prohibiting the future ownership, breeding, sale, trade or barter of wild animals. However, this order will expire 90 days from the date it was given—it’s up to new Governor John Kasich to make this common-sense measure permanent.

What You Can Do
Please make a brief, polite phone call to Governor Kasich’s office at (614) 466-3555 to let him know that, as an Ohio resident, you support making the wild/exotic pet ban permanent.

Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center online for more information and for helpful talking points that you can refer to when you call the governor. We also have a link you can use to email the governor if you prefer to communicate that way.

Thank you for defending wild and exotic animals, Ohio!

Some Good News!

Right before Gov. Strickland left office he passed a temporary ban on many exotic pets in Ohio. It was assumed that the new Gov. Kasich would pass the temporary order into a permanent ban when he took office.

Now the temporary ban is expiring and Kasich has confirmed he will not renew the ban. Does this mean he is thinking about a different type of bill on exotic pets or is he doing away with all exotic pet legislation for now?

Strickland left a 12 course meal (the ban) for Kasich when he already had more then enough on his plate. Is he going to keep it as leftovers or was it something not to his taste has not been let known. I'd have to say no news is good news at this point.

Now I got one other thing to worry about. I work in a city just a couple over from yours David. Kasich believes I'm living the dream and must be whacked!

No dreaming here in Ohio, just nightmares.

Weren't some reptile collections already confiscated due to this temporary ban?
Will those owners be compensated for the thefts or have some sort of legal grounds for a lawsuit?
