Exotic animals crackdown
GERMANTOWN, OHIO- Four bears were seized by authorities as Ohio cracks down on people who did not comply with new requirements for owning wild animals.
The bears were taken from land southwest of Dayton and the owner had previously reported owning a tiger and a cougar, which were not found. The state says the owner, Daniel Chambers, refused to surrender the bears.
They were taken to a holding facility until new homes can be found.
That facility has housed a hundred animals which were surrendered or seized since Ohio enacted stricter laws after an exotic animal escaped near Zanesville four years ago.
