Anyone have any info on laws/regulations on keeping wildlife? Specifically squirrels. ex: finding abandoned baby squirrels. Does it vary state by state? Anyone know anything about Virginia? Just wondering. Thanks.
I think most people apply the term exotic to any animal that is not a standard or traditional pet such as a dog, cat, hamster. You could call the Game Warden for the county and see if they know of any codes preventing keeping them.
