No more bison, brown bears as pets


This is a brown bear video.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Minister Van Dam is going to allow a lot less mammal species to be kept as pets. Now there are 276 mammal species kept by individuals. As of July 1 Van Dam will stop 153 of these.

Species no longer allowed include bison, brown bear and grey kangaroo. The government will prohibit the keeping of these animals because they can pose a danger to their surroundings or because their well-being can not be guaranteed.

Risks to humans and animals

Van Dam has compiled a list of 123 animals based on expert advice that are allowed to be kept as pets.
