Exotic animals from Ohio bound for Minn. sanctuary
An Ohio exotic animal owner is sending two big cats to Minnesota ahead of stricter rules in her state.
A tiger and a cougar will arrive at The Wildcat Sanctuary in Sandstone, Minn., next week after their owner contacted the sanctuary for help. The animals, Nikita and Tasha, will join the more than 120 wild cats already living on the Sandstone property.
Lawmakers in Ohio and in Congress are proposing tougher regulations on private ownership of exotic animals following the release of dozens of animals in October by an Ohio man who then killed himself.
