Change the Bylaw for the Keeping of Exotic Pets

Petition to change the by-law concerning the keeping of exotic pets in The City of Hamilton, ON. According to the By-law we are not allowed to keep any class 4 or 5 animal within the city. This by-law states that we are not permitted to keep any exotic pet at all. This petition is to make a positive impact on, and to further our society by allowing the thousands of good people who already own exotic pets not break any laws. The current By-law is extremely outdated, passed the 28th of August, 1984, and absolutely needs to be updated, to compensate the more and more people choosing exotics as pets.

    5 years ago Comments: this bylaw is fucked up, we should be able to own what ever pet we want as long as we can care and contain it properaly. if its not bothering anyone else who cares what we keep in our own living quarters. how many cases of snake bites are there over dog or even cat bites? THIS IS THE DUMBEST BYLAW I HAVE EVER HEARD OF AND LETS PUT AN END TO IT?
