The exotic animal trade in the United States brings in upwards of $15 million per year, at the expense of rare and impressive animals. The creatures- parrots, snakes, big cats, even bears- are caught from the wild while young, and are smuggled through various borders on their way to America. Upon arrival, they are often kept in cramped, dirty, and unhealthy conditions due to the illegal or unregulated nature of the industry. Money talks. These animals should not be owned by private citizens. Wake up W. Va. Done

Exotic animals are not pets and belong in the wild. Many have endangered status. The fact that some 90 percent of exotic animals die in the first year of being brought into a home in the States is a fair indication that this is hardly a good idea.
