RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — A public meeting will be held today in order to discuss Virginia’s laws regarding the ownership of dangerous animals. The event is part of Governor Bob McDonnell’s, “Virginia Dangerous Animal Initiative.”

The meeting starts Wednesday, October 24 and runs from 4:00p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the VHDA Virginia Housing Center. That’s located at 4224 Cox Road, in Glen Allen.

The public is encouraged to attend and voice any comments or concerns regarding the initiative.

The initiative was in response to an incident in Ohio in which approximately 50 dangerous and exotic animals were released by a private owner and had to be killed.

More information on the event and the initiative can be found at the website for the Virginia Dangerous Animals Initiative.
