Depends on your area. Anything not native to WI has to have a permit/license here. A lot of times the USDA or DNR or both come out and access your area and plans prior to purchase. We even have tough times with getting pheasants for meat up here. Always check local, city, state laws before getting an unusual friend.There are people who raise wallabies and kangaroos in the US. My friend that has one says it is perfectly legal to own a kangaroo and you don't have to have a permit or USDA license to have one.
