Is it legal to own a pet squirrel in minnesota?

no. you cannot keep a native species of wildlife as a pet in minnesota. period. there is a reason why ';wild'; is part of the word ';wildlife.';Is it legal to own a pet squirrel in minnesota?
Probably not, but when I lived in Minnesota, the squirrels were so tame that you could sometimes touch them. We used to set up cardboard boxes with a stick and a long string and catch them. We would entice them into the yard by putting out food like cereal or crackers - they love peanut butter. We didn't keep them, though. We set them free. They are so cute, but caution, kids. They bite and can carry bad diseases, like rabies. I don't think they were meant to be pets.Is it legal to own a pet squirrel in minnesota?
I live in MN and my friend has had a pet squirrel for years now i don't know if its legal though. They don't make good pets though they cant be completely tamed. It can be vicious and dirty.
