Have Some Extra Exotic Animals Around Your House? Give Them to Zoo Miami on March 12th
In conjunction with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Zoo Miami will host an event on March 12th between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in which citizens can surrender unwanted exotic pets.
The aim is to keep the animals from being otherwise released into the wild and messing up Florida's delicate ecosystem.
In turn, most healthy animals surrendered will be available for adoption by qualified owners.
The Sun-Sentinel reports that at the event held last year, about 70 animals were surrendered including 8 Burmese pythons, 16 red-eared sliders, two parrots and a monkey.
