If you have time to write a letter to your news papers and/or contact your state officials, that would be great. The Take Part campaign directs you to Born Free, a great NGO for wild animals in captivity.

ppl that consider exotic animals as pets...need a brain scan for severe brain damage! Wild animals belong to the wild and thatīs it!

Wild animals should be out in the wild, not kept as a pet in a backyard or basement.

So many of these exotics will end up abused, neglected,killed. A few might be lucky and end up in sanctuaries, which are sttruggling with the expense. Some will end up in cruel canned hunts. Idiot humans jump on a fad and can not meet the need of these wild animals.

Can't we just stick to cats and dogs? You know, things that actually like us and need a home?

I just HATE it when people treat animals in any degrading way, such as keeping one just to entertain their needs, or enclose and enslave the animal for their own selfish benefit... just sick

they are not pets they are wild animals. they are being abused living in people's homes. they don't get the right food, exercise or care that they need to thrive.
it needs to stop.
