Are Ocelots Endangered?
For many years, the ocelot was an endangered animal and strict regulations were put into place restricting the sale, transport, keeping, and hunting of the species. However, global populations began to flourish, and the ocelot was moved up to the IUCN Red List conservation rating of least concern. That said, the population trend is currently decreasing, so it’s unclear what the future holds for the ocelot.
Is It Legal to Own an Ocelot?
When the ocelot was an endangered species, selling, hunting, owning, or transporting one was highly illegal. Today, the ocelot is no longer an endangered species, though they are a protected species in many places. This means that it’s much harder to keep an ocelot than a standard domestic pet like a house cat.
In some places, owning an ocelot is completely legal. Other jurisdictions have strict laws surrounding keeping them as pets. You might be required to get permits or pay fees in order to do so. But some places have outright banned them as pets, including Alaska and New England. If you decide that owning an ocelot is right for you, then you’ll want to make sure to do some thorough research into the legality of keeping an ocelot as a pet where you live.
