Fla. officials offer amnesty day for exotic pets

MIAMI (AP) - Got a spare rhesus monkey, Mexican spiny-tailed
iguana or Cuban tree frog causing trouble around the house?
Wildlife officials in Florida and the Miami Metrozoo are holding
their fifth annual Non-native Pet Amnesty Day on Saturday.
Owners of exotic pets are allowed to turn them in without facing
the usual fines and other penalties for violating the state's
wildlife laws.
Wildlife officials say the amnesty day gives overwhelmed pet
owners an alternative to releasing exotic animals into Florida's
ecosystem.
