Dodge City Outlaws Gators and Crocs As Pets

KSCB News - April 7, 2011 8:24 am

Officials in Dodge City have removed any
doubt about what’s an acceptable pet in city limits.
Dogs, cats, ferrets, some birds and reptiles are fine. But
alligators, crocodiles, Komodo dragons that can grow up to eight
feet long – those, the city says, are not "companion animals"
that qualify as pets.
The City Commission this week
expanded the list of forbidden pets following a recent municipal
court case over a pet alligator. City Clerk Nanette Pogue says the
prosecutor and judge thought the current description of "companion
animals" was too vague.
Also newly outlawed as pets are monitor lizards, caimans and
anaconda snakes.
Now, anyone intent on keeping a pet crocodile might want to
think about getting out of Dodge.
