The bill introduced in the last session of the Ohio General Assembly by state Rep. George Distel, a Conneaut Democrat, will be reintroduced in the next session in January.

Among other things, Distel's bill would require people who possess dangerous wild animals or exotic animals to:

_Obtain a personal possession permit.

_Obtain and maintain liability insurance that covers claims for injury or damage to people or property caused by such animals.

_Post and display signs at intervals of 10 feet along the boundary of the property where the animals are confined, warning the public that a dangerous wild animal or exotic animal is on the property.

_Keep a log of all dangerous wild animals or exotic animals they possess.

_Not tether, leash or chain a dangerous wild animal or an exotic animal outside a cage or allow it to roam.
