She should be hopping with happiness
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) - April 20, 2011 (WPVI) -- An Oklahoma woman may get to keep her pet kangaroo.
Officials in a Tulsa suburb are in favor of an exotic animal ordinance exemption that would let her keep her red kangaroo within city limits.
The proposal would allow exotic animal owners to keep their pets if they get a newly created permit requiring them to have a $50,000 insurance policy for any injuries inflicted by the animal.
They'd also have to get certification the animal has adequate housing for its health and meet all federal and state guidelines for licensing, among other provisions.
