This document has a comment period that ends in 60 days. (10/23/2017)

This is a really big deal for ANYONE that has a 501c3 designation with, for or about exotics of any kind. Holders of any type of USDA Federal Permit will be those that will be impacted by the changes that will come from these proposed changes. Owners and anyone having anything to do with an exotic animal, wolves and wolfdogs needs to read this.  Those that seek permits in the future will also be impacted. READ the notice top to bottom as their are definite areas that everyone will need to read and questions have been asked within the NOTICE that USDA is seeking comments from the public. Pass this to anyone that deals with USDA permits or owns/cares for exotic animals.

Let your VOICES BE HEARD!!!!!!!  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
