In British homes, who takes the ostrich for a walk?

A British group learned you don't know who your neighbors are until you use sunshine laws to investigate what animals they hide in their homes. Armed with a Freedom of Information request, The Big Cats in Britain group asked local councils to fork over data on the types of creatures owned by private individuals. The data showed that Britons keep quite a range of animals as pets. On the list:

• 154 assorted cats, including - 12 lions - 14 tigers - 50 leopards
• 2,000 ostriches
• 500 monkeys
• 250 poisonous snakes
• 50 crocodiles
• 300 American bison
