PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Commissioners in Pender County approved a plan to add new rules in regards to owning dangerous wild animals in the county.
They decided to add an “inherently dangerous wild animal” section to the current animal control ordinance.
It states that it’s against the law for anyone to own a dangerous wild animal, with the exception of being part of a zoo, fair or other temporary event.
Animals already kept in the county will be grandfathered in, but must be registered within 90 days.
