* It looks like Gov. John Kasich is on the hot seat for allowing the executive order on exotic animal ownership to expire. Kasich detests regulations, but he really made a big mistake that resulted in a complete disaster in Zanesville. His arrogance caused this mess.
...Now Gov. John Kasich is coming under fire from some animal groups Wednesday night, ONN's affiliate WEWS reported.
A ban on exotic pets expired in April and Kasich didn't renew it. Now some groups are criticizing the governor for not doing enough fast enough.
Before leaving office, former Gov. Ted Strickland issued a ban barring people from bringing exotic animals into Ohio.
It also prohibited people convicted of animal cruelty, like Terry Thompson, from owning exotic animals.....
Even Republican friendly Ted Nugent was upset with Kasich.
Ted Nugent has a bone to pick with Ohio Gov. John Kasich over an exotic animal escape near Zanesville that captivated the nation Wednesday.
The Motor City Madman and conservation activist monitored the situation from a hunting cabin on his 1,200-acre Jackson County farm, and said Kasich was to blame for failing to ban exotic animal ownership.
"I'm going to make a call to Gov. Kasich because he (ended) an executive order by the previous governor that did prohibit and control wild animal ownership," Nugent told The Detroit News on Wednesday. "These are real, wild, dangerous, capable and dangerous animals and they belong in the wild."
