Default Re: Chinese hamster breeders in North Charleston

You are right Cinnamon Bear that you can be given a penalty for owning a Chinese Hamster in California but they are restricted rather than being illegal, meaning that you must have a permit to keep them. These permits are granted to research laboratories and licenced exhibitors and the average pet owner is unlikely to be issued with one.

I think it's sad that such a lovely species is treated so unfavourably, particularly when the other species of hamster are permitted.
