It’s Illegal to Own a Lion in CT But Feel Free to Purchase a Hedgehog
Son of a b---I, I ordered the lion already and according to my tracking number it's due at my house any day now.
No, all jokes aside, seriously you can't own a lion in the Nutmeg State. According to Find My Law, that is not all. Here are some other exotic animals that are NOT OK to own in the Constitution State:
- All Wild Dogs
What can you own? Here is the very short list:
- Sugar Gliders
- Primates under 35 lbs at maturity, and owned before 2010
I had this minty fresh plan to get revenge on my neighbor who drives 100 mph in our complex parking lot, and now it's ruined. I wanted to purchase a puma and put it in his backseat before work. That way, if the guy moved, or blinked it would be mauled by the Puma and then he would know that he was driving too fast and putting the children in danger but I'm not willing to live outside the law.
I am very surprised to learn you can purchase and own a hedgehog, and I wonder what is behind that?
The fact is, I don't know much about hedgehogs so I did a little research and here is some of what I learned from Nat Geo Kids:
- Hedgehogs are mammals
- In the wild, they only live for about 7 years
- They have prickly spines everywhere but their face, legs and belly
- They are largely nocturnal
- They eat lizards, frogs, eggs, snakes, insects, mice and snails
This makes tons of sense, I can own a needle ball that stays up all night, devouring lizards buy I can't have a lion? Lions barely do anything but lay around and look majestic all day. What is this country coming to?
