Arkansas

Zusammenfassung: 

Arkansas prohibits private possession of big cats. Arkansas law mandates that no large carnivore, including lions and tigers, may be privately owned because those animals are inherently dangerous to humans.  

There are exceptions to this ban, including a person who owned the big cat prior to August 12, 2005 and now holds a permit, AZA-accredited organizations, registered nonprofit humane societies, veterinary hospitals or clinics, USDA Wildlife Exhibition Permit holders, Arkansas State Game and Fish Commission Scientific Collection Permit holders, and Arkansas State Game and Fish Commission Wildlife Breeder or Dealer permit holders.
