Adorable Animals That Are Illegal To Have As A Pet

Trace Dominguez of DNews explains why certain animals are illegal to have as a pet in certain states, while not illegal in others. He does stress, however, that just because it’s not illegal, doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea.

Pets like ferrets and hedgehogs have been banned in certain states in the U.S. for decades. Why are they still illegal to own, and why can’t we own exotic pets like monkeys and lions? Trace explains how certain wild animals are cute, but would make terrible pets.
