Yesterday the city council in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma voted unanimously to create an exotic animal ordinance exception that will let Christie Carr keep Irwin, her partially-paralyzed kangaroo. The new law allows people to keep exotic animals if they have certification of adequate housing and a $50,000 liability insurance policy for injuries caused by the animal. (An anonymous donor already provided a policy for Irwin.) Carr says caring for Irwin helps treat her depression. "My life centers around him," she says. "Irwin has brought me out of my shell."
