10-Year-Old Girl Is Latest Victim of Exotic Pet Attack

Published 05/27/09

A 10-year-old girl is listed in good condition at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh after being bitten by a mountain lion in Columbiana County. It didn't happen at any zoo, or out in the wild — but at home near Lisbon, as a hobby, a family keeps several full-sized lions and mountain lions caged up in their yard.

Born Free USA maintains a database of exotic animal incidents, which occur so frequently as to make laws prohibiting private possession of exotic animals a necessity. Ohio has no laws addressing the private ownership of exotic animals.
