As “Tiger King” enters its third week among Netflix’s top ratings, Ohio viewers would notice the part of the documentary that hits close to home–the Zanesville massacre in 2011.  A total of 48 exotic animals, including Bengal tigers, African lions, bears, cougars, wolves, and monkeys were killed.  This horrific incident led to passage of Ohio’s Dangerous Wild Animal Act in 2012. However, exotic ownership still occurs. In 2019, a serval–brought across state lines from Indiana–was killed in Licking County (learn more in OAA’s Wildlife Protection Resources and Reading Room).  Use the OAA Action Alert to tell Congress to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act and stop the interstate transport of exotic cats.
