Why not propose legislation of a similar nature requiring permits, inspections, and a sign on the house for proven dangerous animals that are "domestic"? Why single out "wild" animals? The answer is because there is a large constituency who keep standard pet types who would not put up with it. It is much easier to try to over-regulate a minority.
Tell me that you don't need specialized equipment and knowledge to keep a horse. Or that if that horse escapes, it's not a threat as it runs through traffic. Is it OK that non-indigenous predators (cats)are allowed to roam free wreaking havoc on songbirds and small native wildlife? They are totally unregulated. No permit needed, breed as many as you want. How about some legislation controlling this problem?
This is all about prejudice. HSUS involvement on some level seems likely.
