Update in Ohio, H$U$ has asked federal court Judge Smith to join the State of Ohio in defending the exotic animal ban.

As posted on NECN.com:


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Humane Society of the United States wants to join the state in defending a lawsuit that challenges Ohio's new law regulating dangerous wildlife.

The lawsuit filed earlier this month in Columbus federal court by four owners of exotic animals contends the restrictions threaten their First Amendment and property rights.

The Humane Society asked Judge George Smith on Tuesday to allow the organization to intervene in the lawsuit.

The organization says it has a significant interest in defending the law that it strongly supported, as well as an interest in the lawsuit's outcome since the organization is pushing similar laws nationwide.

Ohio's law followed the 2011 mass killings of dozens of escaped wild animals that had been released by their suicidal owner in eastern Ohio.

So, the "more lenient" housing conditions only *seem* to apply to those Indicated in section b, while those with the restricted snake permit are subject to those laid out in the "Application of Rules" section, including the ZAA.

Actually, there was an amendment to the law in Sept of 2014 since the ZAA regs were legally unenforceable, as myself and others testified. The new requirements are under 935.12(b) and are pretty reasonable- Here is a link to the entire compliance section -- http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/935.12

sorry 935.12(c). full text --

(C) A person that has been issued a restricted snake possession or restricted snake propagation permit under this chapter shall comply with all of the following regarding the housing of those snakes:

(1) An enclosure shall be provided with an environment or devices that allow for temperature regulation necessary to ensure the well-being of the snakes. The environment or devices shall be noninjurious and may include hot rocks, artificial lights, natural sunlight, and heat strips.

(2) An enclosure shall be provided with noninjurious substrate such as newspaper, processed wood shavings, rocks, sand, indoor-outdoor carpet, or other equivalent material. The substrate shall be disposed of or sanitized at intervals sufficient to ensure the health of the snakes.

(3) An enclosure shall be constructed in a manner that offers enough space and complexity to allow free movement and access to varying thermal gradients as follows:

(a) If a snake is a restricted snake specified in division (L)(2), (3), or (4) of section 935.01 of the Revised Code and lives in a primarily terrestrial habitat, all of the following apply:

(i) The perimeter of the enclosure shall be not less than the length of the snake.

(ii) The height of the enclosure shall be not less than five inches.

(iii) For each additional snake permanently housed in an enclosure, the perimeter of the enclosure shall be increased by ten per cent of the perimeter of an enclosure that permanently houses only one snake.

(b) If a snake is a restricted snake specified in division (L)(2), (3), or (4) of section 935.01 of the Revised Code and lives in a primarily arboreal habitat, all of the following apply:

(i) The perimeter of the enclosure shall not be less than the length of the snake.

(ii) The height of the enclosure shall be not less than twelve inches.

(iii) For each additional snake permanently housed in an enclosure, the perimeter of the enclosure shall be increased by ten per cent of the perimeter of an enclosure that permanently houses only one snake.

(c) If the snake is a restricted snake specified in division (L)(1) of section 935.01 of the Revised Code, all of the following apply:

(i) The length of the enclosure shall not be less than forty per cent of the length of the snake.

(ii) The width of the enclosure shall not be less than two feet.

(iii) The height of the enclosure shall be not less than twelve inches.

(iv) For each additional snake permanently housed in an enclosure, the length of the enclosure shall be increased by ten per cent of the length of an enclosure that permanently houses only one snake.

(4) An enclosure shall be constructed of material that securely and effectively contains the snakes. The material used to construct the enclosure may include plastic, tempered or laminated glass, wood, or other equivalent material. The enclosure shall have surfaces that are nonporous and that can be thoroughly and repeatedly cleaned and disinfected.

(5) The door or lid of an enclosure shall have a secure latch or lock attached to the exterior of the enclosure that when latched or locked prevents a snake from leaving the enclosure.

Amended by 130th General Assembly File No. TBD, HB 483, 101.01, eff. 9/15/2014.
