London City Council has voted against a bylaw exemption for Reptilia Inc., which would have allowed them to keep exotic animals in small enclosures at a local mall. Council received approximately thirty submissions on the issue, including a petition signed by 265 people opposing the zoo. National animal law organization, Animal Justice, also testified against the proposal at London City Council, citing concerns over the zoo's treatment of animals.
