More than 650 million exotic animals were imported legally into the United States through the past three years, in line with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Most of those animals are brought into the nation with very little or no screening in any respect for disease. The government employs simply one hundred twenty screeners to judge the tens of millions of animals that enter the country. Disease control experts say the chance to public health posed by these animals could potentially be greater than that of a terrorist act.
