Ross County has until July 1st to put together a team that deals with exotic animals issues.
Ross County Commissioners are looking to form a Dangerous Wild Animal Response Team. Commissioner Doug Corcoran says they met with local EMA Director David Bethel, Monday, to start the process: "The committee has to be put together by July 1st, so we're going to work with David to try to find individuals to serve on that committee.
According to Corcoran, the state does not have any registrations of wild animals from Ross County residents.
He said state law mandates that each county has a Dangerous Wild Animal Response Team, and that it all stems from a 2011 incident in which a Zanesville man released his exotic animals from their pens.
