The state of Georgia has deemed hedgehog ownership illegal for state citizens, however, it is perfectly legal for a licensed breeder to breed in Georgia. However, they cannot be sold in to a citizen of the state, the hedghog must be shipped to another state.
The law seems to have been made under the concern that the escaped hedgehogs may form colonies in the wild. But why would that be an issue? Dogs are legal to own, and if they escape they're sure to cause more mischeif in the wild than a hedgehog. Cats as well.
Why should a citizen of Georgia not be allowed to have a pet hedgehog?
