xxxtheherpfreakxxx asked: About the state laws on foxes, what happens if you live in a state where foxes are legal, obtain a fox, and then later move to a state which considers them illegal? Are there exceptions for things like that?
Unfortunately, no. If foxes are illegal in a state, then they are illegal in that state, no exceptions. So if you have to move, you better make sure you move to a fox-friendly state, otherwise you are going to have to rehome your fox. That is why its important to be in a stable position before you buy a fox.
I think a good state to bring up would be Arkansas. In Arkansas, you cannot import a fox from Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, Wisconsin, Wyoming or Canada.
So, I live in Michigan, and let’s say I got my fox from one of these states, but my job is forcing me to transfer to Arkansas. I would either have to try to decline my transfer, or quit my job, because even though I would technically be moving from Michigan, my fox would have originated from a state that you cannot import from in Arkansas. Its still illegal, even though you are not importing directly from that state.
