How you can ditch your exotic pets

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

This weekend is your chance to take care of a pet problem, no questions asked.

Florida Fish and Wildlife will hold an exotic pet amnesty event Saturday. If you have an exotic pet that you can't take care of anymore you can surrender it, even if it is illegal.

FWC is doing it to prevent non-native species from being dumped into the wild.

The event will take place on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve.
