REYNOLDSBURG -- The Ohio Department of Agriculture reminds dangerous wild animal and restricted snake owners, and commercial dog breeders and retailers that permit applications for 2014 are due no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 31, 2013.
Dangerous Wild Animal and Restricted Snake Permits
After Jan. 1, 2014, a valid permit is required to keep an existing dangerous wild animal or a restricted snake.

Dangerous wild animal owners who registered their animal in accordance with the law will be sent application materials, which are also available at: http://www.agri.ohio.gov/apps/odaforms/odaforms.aspx?div=Animal Health.
Restricted snake owners need to contact the departments Division of Animal Health to obtain the appropriate application forms or download them from the departments website by visiting: http://www.agri.ohio.gov/apps/odaforms/odaforms.aspx?div=Animal Health.
