Illegal for Good Reason

No, not you my lamb. RCW 16.30, also known as the Washington State law for Dangerous Wild Animals lists categories of animals that are illegal because they are dangerous for multiple reasons.

These animals can hunt you, eat you, poison you, infect you with diseases, or just plain trample you to death. Some extra animals I am not including in the list of 12 are rhinoceroses, hyenas, elephants, and sea snakes.

There are many listed in the law, but these 12 are the most likely to be wanted for pets that can kill you!
