This ordinance that bans the possession and display of wild animals destroys legal jobs and harms the future of these animals that the ignorant City Council Members claim they are looking to protect!
For the ignorant who believe that these animals only belong "in the wild," please inform them of the truth behind what the wild means for animals today and the importance of true conservation and how private ownership SAVES species!
