Big Cats Com – E SURE TO CHECK IN TO CF THE BRIDGE REMAINS OPEN ON SIGN.

DAN: NEW TONIGHT, OWNERS OF AN EXOTIC ANIMAL COLLECTION HAVE BEEN CITED FOR VIOLATING LAND-USE.

JENNIFER: TIM BECKER HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THE STORY FOR SOME TIME.

TIM: GOOD AFTERNOON.

IT GETS COMPLICATED.

BASICALLY, THIS LAND IS ZONED EXCLUSIVELY FOR FARM USE, AND THE COUNTY SAYS HAVING LIONS, TIGARD AND SUCH DOESN’T FALL UNDER THAT DEFINITION, BUT THE OWNERS OF ‘A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE’SAY THEY WILL TAKE THIS TO COURT.

TO THE EYE, THIS HILLSBORO PROPERTY IS STILL HIGHLY FARM -ORIENTED.

WITH A PASTURE, ORCHARDS, AND EQUINE FACILITY.

IT’S WHEN THE LIONS, OTHER BIG CATS, AND EXOTIC ANIMALS MOVED IN THAT SEVERAL neighbors VOICED OBJECTIONS TO THE COUNTY.

WE ARE GETTING COMPLAINTS FROM OWNERS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE NOISE LEVEL.

AS FAR AS WE CONCERNED, WE ARE NOT DOING ANY WRONG.

TIM: ANIMAL OWNER STEVE HIGGS TELLS ME HIS BUSINESS IS JUST A DIFFERENT KIND OF AGRICULTURE.

NOTING HIS LICENSING AND CERTIFICATION FROM AGENCIES LIKE THE DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE.

AND FISH AND WILDLIFE.

WE HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PEOPLE HURT.

TIM: STILL SOURCING SEVERAL DIFFERENT ORDINANCES LIKE THIS THE COUNTY ISSUED TWO CITATIONS ONE, TO HIGGS, FOR ‘FEEDING, BREEDING AND MANAGEMENT OF EXOTIC ANIMALS, AND SALES OF PRODUCTS OF EXOTIC ANIMALS ON FARM ZONED PROPERTY, WITHOUT A PERMIT.

‘ THEY HARVEST AND SELL TIGER MANEUR TO FARMERS, WHO USE IT TO WARD OFF OTHER ANIMALS LIKE COYOTES AND DEER.

THEY HAVE COME UP WITH A REASON WHY WE CANNOT DO THAT, EITHER.

OUR GOAL IS TO BRING PEOPLE INTO COMPLIANCE AND THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE TRIED TO DO.

WHEN THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE, WE MOVE ON TO VIOLATIONS AND HEARING.

IT IS KIND OF SAD THEY WOULD GO TO THAT POINT.

I GUESS WE HAVE TO CONTINUE ON TO THE BATTLE AND SEE WHERE IT GOES.

TIM: TAKE IT TO COURT IF YOU HAVE TO? THAT IS IT.

TIM: HE FACES FINES OF UP TO $5,000 FOR EACH VIOLATION.
