Ban tigers

WSPA calls for licensing of exotic animals in wake of tiger mauling.

The WSPA says the death was a tragedy that could have been prevented had the province banned the keeping of dangerous exotic pets when it revised its animal protection law earlier this year.

The group says Ontario is the only province that doesn’t require a licence to keep dangerous exotic animals and it’s calling on the Ontario government to implement licensing to help prevent future deaths.

The society says about 60 per cent of all Canadian zoos are in Ontario, and it estimates 500 exotic cats are kept as pets in the province.
