Sad state of affairs. EVERYONE needs to keep an eye out for any kind of animal abusers in their neighborhood. I know I do. And I will report ANYONE in a heartbeat if they were abusing or holding exotics...especially in bad conditions. There is waaay too much apathy from the general populace in this country. Either that or people thrive on "freakshows" like tigers in truckstops or circuses, ad infinitum....

Noted, thanks. The ownership of exotic animals should be banned everywhere.

I can't understand why people are allowed to keep exotic animals, it should be banned period. Thank you Simone.

Keeping exotic animals as pets is plain vanity!
