HELENA (AP) n A Montana woman wants a state permit allowing her to exhibit exotic animals in Boyd, between Billings and Yellowstone National Park.
Corynne Freeman says her 16 species include an anteater, an African bushbaby, several kinds of tortoises and sugar gliders, which are sometimes compared to flying squirrels. Freeman recently moved the animals to Boyd, from her home in the Roundup area.
She has a U.S. Department of Agriculture exhibitor's permit. The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks evaluated her request for a state permit and issued an environmental assessment for public comment until June 27. The agency found a more comprehensive environmental impact statement is not necessary.
