By KMVT News

Ketchum, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) Legislation has been adopted banning performances with exotic animals from participating in central Idaho.

The Ketchum City Council voted unanimously to adopt the ordinance on Monday.

Students from Sage School provided evidence to support the ordinance, citing animal abuse, public safety issues and economic data.

The ordinance still allows for special permits to allow the animals if the council decides they provide something of value.
