For instance, Mark Schoebel, the owner of Timbavati Wildlife Park in Wisconsin Dells and Animal Entertainments, a Neshkoro business that rents out animals for shows and fairs, has consigned some of his animals to the Lolli Brothers Livestock Market in Macon, Missouri, which Leahy said conducts the country’s largest exotic animal auctions.
For example, in North Carolina, where there are no statewide laws governing exotic pet ownership, the Surry County board of commissioners lately banned big cats, non-native venomous reptiles, nonhuman primates, and wolves following a 10 year old boy and a 14 year old girl had been mauled by captive tigers in separate incidents.
