Asked at the 10/2/17 City Council Meeting:   

"Does the City have an Ordinance that prohibits or restricts certain exotic animal species to be kept as pets?"

Answered by Corey Hamilton, Animal Control Officer:  

The State of Maine and Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has the full authority to regulate exotic species in Maine. They have a list of all species that are currently legal to own. It's a long list and a lot of the animals listed can be difficult to differentiate between a similar, but illegal species, so it's best that the State set the guidelines for such ownership.   The list of Unrestricted Species can be found here:  http://www.maine.gov/ifw/wildlife/pdfs/unrestrictedspecies_08172017.pdf
