New York State Exotic Animal Laws: ( EXCLUDING the Five Boroughs of New York City )
Many states have laws that specifically prohibit individuals from keeping certain exotic animals – including sloths – as pets in their households. New York is not one of those states. In New York, under NY AGRI & MKTS § 370, you’re only prohibited from owning wild animals.
Specifically, it’s a crime to own, possess, or harbor “a wild animal or reptile capable of inflicting bodily harm upon a human being.” A Sloth is NOT a wild animal
New York law defines “wild animal” to include:
- Nonhuman primates and prosimians
- Cats (other than domesticated cats)
- Dogs (other than domesticated dogs and captive fennec foxes)
- Venomous reptiles (with a few exceptions), and
Wild animals specifically exclude companion animals, such as cats, dogs, birds, and other animals commonly kept as pets.
In New York City, the list of prohibited animals is even longer. It includes giraffes, iguanas, camels, sheep, koalas, squirrels, Sloths, Kangaroos, Capybaras, and a host of other creatures.
All animals for sale including Sloths, Kangaroos and Capybaras are all legal in the state of NEW YORK. But they are prohibited in the Five Boroughs of New York City, and cannot be owned or harbored.
Despite Kangaroos, Wallabies , Sloths and Capybaras being legal in the state of New York . There are jurisdictions such as the Five Boroughs of New York in which they are not legal to own. Please review your local state laws before acquiring any type of animal.
