These Are the Animals Banned as Pets in Each New England State
I've lived in New England all my life, and there have been times I've seen people with pets that make me ask myself, "Is it legal for them to have that as a pet?" I know people absolutely love animals, but you can't just make any animal a pet. Each state in New England has rules about what animals you can have as a pet.
I'm not a pet lover, so even dogs and cats are out for me. But some pets I've seen people owning in New England seem a little crazy to me. Snakes are the big ones that I see in people's homes. Like, BIG snakes kept in what looks like an empty aquarium with a heat lamp shining down on the snake to keep them warm in New England's climate.
But too many times, exotic animals do not get the proper care to survive in the climate of New England. Owners either neglect or improperly care for these pets, or they take them right out of their natural habitat. Just ask Mr. Drew and His Animals Too.
With the proper permits, you can have many exotic and uncommon pets in your home depending on what state you live in. If you'd like to get an uncommon pet, you might want to check this list of animals for each state in New England.
