USARK - Imagine being fined $25,000 for taking a llama to a 4-H fair, or a lemur to a Boy Scouts program. California Senate Bill 313 does just that! It would ban many educational outreach and other programs with animals. There is a species list rather than a blanket ban on all non-native species, but there are larger issues with these bills. These animal act bans place responsible animal owners into the same category as criminals conducting acts of animal cruelty. These bills are sold as a way to prevent animal cruelty. Animal welfare and cruelty laws already exist nationwide. These animal act bans are superfluous laws that will be selectively enforced, making criminals out of good people.
