Does this apply to guys who import poor little foreign bitches who have no litters or critters or riches?

This is indeed a step in the right direction for OHIO.

We still need stronger animal abuse and animal cruelty penalties as well as enforcing Hunting Rules and coming down harder on POACHERS.

Dayton if rife with Dog-fighters, and the penalty should fit the crime.

If OHIO needs money, hit those that abuse the current laws with stiffer fines, pull driver's licenses, and make the penalty for animal abuse something the abuser will remember. We can't really put these idiots in JAIL, our Jails are full of violent offenders now.

We can, however make the fine something to remember and couple it to community service.

That is great. Things I have to worry about. There is a huge brown bear caged 1/2 mile from me. A neighbor keeps a 100 pound mountain lion in his house, and I have already ran over a three foot alligator on my road.

Wow Sam, there is a huge brown bear a 1/2 mile from me also, and my neighbors dogs were out in our back yard barking like crazy at one of my pine trees and that was a two foot alligator. Why anybody would want these for pets is beyond stupid.

Those racist nativist Xeniaphobic Moraine morons got rid of those lovely little Asian ladies who were not bitches and did not take all of your riches, and who did not wear burkas or britches, make them an endangered species who did not bitch or give you feces.

I'm not giving up my rights for owning exotic animals my 2 pythons and my 2 boas and my savannah monitor are not at fault. Neither s the bears he just thaught he was in danger. Some of us exotic animal owners teach others about them, maybe if the people who were trying to ban them learn about them then they would have a different opninion.

But too many owners are irresponsible when the animal gets too big to handle. Thus we've had hundreds of pythons released in Florida, along with Monitor lizards, monkies, poisonous snakes, and other species. Why not work with owners of parks that show these animals if you want to teach? There is no good reason for private homes to have these creatures because given half a chance they'll leave your abode.

An open-border cheap-labor free-trader foreign-aider man with a plan can make and get some riches, if only he can import more poor pretty erotic exotic bitches.

OUr kind was given stewardship over the Earth, so it is our duty to preserve the species, even if the law chooses not to respect that right.

So we should respect Leon Harrison even if a court of law determines that he is a pedophile predator? No thanks!
