State Board to Meet This Week on Dangerous Animals

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A board tasked with compiling a list of animals that are illegal to keep as pets in West Virginia will consider a list that is shorter than one suggested earlier.
    
Media outlets report the state Wild and Dangerous Animal Board will meet on Wednesday as it tries to comply with legislation passed earlier this year.
    
Gone from the amended list are savannah cats, turtles, hedgehogs and sugar gliders. Those were on the board's original list that drew more than 200 public comments, prompting a subcommittee work out a compromise.
    
Wendy Skidmore of Lost Creek owns sugar gliders, which are small, gliding possums. She agrees they don't belong on the list.
    
Josie McInturff of Pipestem breeds savannah cats and says the animals are considered playful, not wild or dangerous.
