This proposed ban is just another step to eradicating animal ownership. Thank you to USARK (United States Association of Reptile Keepers) for the following information.

ALERT: Sioux City, IA
Oct 5, 2022 | USARK Newsletter
Sioux City is taking steps to severely limit the number of animals that can be owned by its residents by redefining the term domestic animal (which currently only includes dogs and cats). As redefined, it would include most animals and limit the number per household to no more than three pets in total.
This ban narrowly passed its first reading (3-2) so not all Council members approve of this legislative abuse.
Local residents must voice their opposition immediately as the next reading and vote are scheduled for Monday, October 10.

If passed, it would be illegal to:
1. own more than two of a pet species;
2. own more than three combined pets.
Sioux City already bans ownership of more than two dogs or two cats. The City also limits the total number of pets to three (i.e. two dogs and one cat or vice versa).
