Saskatoon ByLaw Would Allow Pythons and Boas to be Kept as Companion Animals

Saskatoon City Council has proposed changes to the animal control bylaw to allow certain types of pythons and boas to be kept as companion animals. Ward 3 councillor David Kirton says this is meant to bring the bylaw into alignment with broader provincial laws: “The provincial government has changed its laws to allow certain pythons and boas to be exotic pets here in Saskatchewan, and so it’s needed then that the city change its bylaws to comply with the provincial laws.”
