Did you know that wild animals have been abused and have killed people as pets? Animals are abused and mistreated every day and deserve better treatment. They are usually trapped in cage with nowhere else to go, and feel depressed and miserable, but there are also good owners. Exotic animals are too amazing to be trapped in a cage and be someone's pet.
Exotic animals are dangerous in most cases, but people can own them if there areas to keep them in and have some responsibility. It is legal if somebody wanted to own a wolf they could buy one in some places, but with a license and secured fences to keep them in to have more protection. The commentary “Let People Own Exotic Animals” by Zuzana Kukol, and the Article “When Wild Pets Get too Wild, Wolf Run Offers a Home Where They Can Roam” all support owning exotic animals as pets. People should own exotic animals under these rules and still be safe, it is our right.
Why People Should Not Be Allowed to Own Exotic Pets. Thinking about owning a tiger, monkey, or any other exotic pet? Believe it or not, it is not as simple as just buying them, in fact, it is much more dangerous than owning a dog, and it might not be for the reasons that many think. Many people do not really have opinions on the owning of these exotic pets, as it is not very common to do so.
All living species should be treated with care and respect, no organisms should be made a commodity for the sake of human interest. Exotic animals, which are unusual or rare species such as lions, tigers, and non-human primates – are nowadays kept within households as pets. However, according to research, 98% of the people believe that exotic animals should not be kept as “pets”. Such opinions are due to several reasons that are sometimes supported and other times opposed. Exotic animals should not be treated as pets because they are not completely tamable, they belong to their natural habitat, and they may be transmitting zoonotic diseases to those around them. In contrast, some people believe that exotic animals should be kept as pets to save them from extinction.
The childhood dream of owning a pet monkey or tiger is a common one, but that’s all that owning an exotic animal should be: a dream. Over 10,000 exotic animals are trafficked into the United States each year, a multi-million-dollar industry on the black market. Owning a wild animal may seem fun and exciting, but with the ownership of such a creature, dangerous consequences follow. The ownership of an exotic animal not only puts the owner 's life at risk, but the animal 's and the environments. There is a common theme among people that it 's humanity 's responsibility to preserve the world we live in, yet there are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild.
In about six years, one female dog and her offspring can theoretically produce 67,000 puppies (Anderson, pg 187). This is just one example of overpopulation of companion animals. Resulting, in a concern with the rising overpopulation of companion animals in the United States. There are too many animals running around uncared for and/or becoming unwanted by their owners so they are left on the streets. There are strategies to combat overpopulation that have been discussed and some I have thought up of on my own. Unfortunately, every strategy will have its pros and cons in society and some are more effective than others. Therefore, there are dilemmas involving some of these strategies that could interfere with consumers’ rights, and business
Animal Captivity Bears don 't normally ride bikes, tigers don 't normally jump through fire, and elephants don 't normally stand up on their back two legs. Laws that protect traveling animals are not enforced enough to make a difference, and are highly ignored. Circuses should not be allowed to capture wild animals for entertainment purposes because the animals are abused, the populations are decreasing, and the animals don 't have enough freedom. To better understand why eliminating animal captivity for entertainment purposes is the best thing to do, someone must think about the opposing viewpoint. Most argue that the eliminating animal captivity for entertainment purposes is more humane.
Almost every child at, a young age, asks for a puppy or kitten, it is a part of growing up. Instead of a puppy, what if a child asked for a baby chimpanzee instead? Exotic animals are not your typical cats, dogs, or even duck but instead are animals like bears, lions, and pythons. I think people should be allowed to have exotic animals as pets because it is their choice, and exotic animals are not as dangerous as they are said to be.
The wild is not a danger free zone where all animals are roaming free and living lives of luxury. It is filled with predators hunting prey and babies dying from malnutrition. Not to mention the extensive deforestation caused by human overpopulation(Wildlife). To summarize this point animals are animals, and animals harm each other in the wild. Another argument is that animals in captivity develop certain mental disorders and conditions that are not commonplace in the wild.
Group Collaboration Introduction: Therefore,exotic pets should be banned in the United States because exotic pets mess up the wildlife, exotic pets are dangerous, and exotic pets are not fit be be in a household. The exotic animals are very dangerous to be around in either a home or the wild. They ruin the wildlife by eating the other food, destroying homes, and killing other animals. The animals should not in in homes because they are bad for humans.
The text piece entitled “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?” states “While it is true that even dogs and cats can injure their owners or other people, they do not have the same unpredictable potential for serious or even deadly attacks that many exotic pets do” (Lewis). This represents how danger can strike at any time especially with exotic animals. The text piece also states “Exotic pets can also spread disease” and “In addition, many exotic pets end up on the loose in the wild”. Therefore, exotic animals are highly dangerous and they can be very harmful to people. People should get exotic animals as pets if they know that they could bring harm to them or anyone that the animal could get
Animal captivity is one of the biggest controversial arguments of today. Many people are against it and people do not see a real problem with animal captivity. This argument has been going on for decades. There are multiple examples of animal captivity facilities, such as, zoos, aquariums, laboratories, and the circus. Zoos, aquariums, and the circus may not seem that bad only because it is entertainment to the public. Buying tickets, stuffed animals, shirts, food, drinks to watch a couple animals do some tricks does not seem that bad does it? Not at all, but the real question is what is really going on behind the scenes of these animals in these places.
The animals take over other animals habitats causing the ecosystem to change which is not a good thing. Some of the animals that are brought here could have the same similar habitat that the native animals have and could scare the native animals out of their original habitat. Since the animals ruin the environment people should not release the non native animals. People who are worried about there invasive species getting to big should call someone who deals with wild animals and they will decide what they need to do with the
They are wild predators and threatening to some. But we should also understand why some opt to adopt them despite understanding its dangers. By implementing a law, we can make sure owners are responsible for it and thus provide adequate care for their own pets. We can make sure neighbors feel comfortable and accept these “special” friends. Last but not the least, we can make sure the animal is safe and free from suffocating cages and insufficient food.
Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
