What Do You Think of Owning a Wild Animal as a Pet?
Wild animals are meant to be in the wild but often people do end up with them as pets what’s your opinion on this should wild animals be kept as pets?
The answer is individual differences, personally, I hate wild animals not talk of bringing it in my home.
Wild animals do play a very important role to eco systems and they are very nice to admire from afar but you are right defiantly not a pet.
Many people are doing it but, I think it’s very dangerous to human beings. These animals are meant to stay in the wild as God didn’t make them pets. We have heard of some people who have lost their lives to these animals.
These animals are meant to live in their natural habitat un interrupted. It’s therefore not a good idea to have them as pets.
But there are some people that keeps them as pets. How do they do it?
I was wondering the same thing myself they clearly pose a threat to human life. Lovely to admire from afar definitely not a pet.
Wild animal as a pet in my opinion is not a good option. It will never feel comfortable as if it were in the bush.
Wild animals are called that for a reason – they havent been tamed like cats and dogs etc. Keep them in the wild and admire from a far.
Everybody has it own opinion about this question. Pet animal for me is good and healthy in the Wild where it is free and happy.
There is a reason they were called wild animals. They shouldn’t be used as pets but should be kept in zoo or in a conservation facility.
Wild animals should be left in the wild and not forced to become pets. You wouldn’t want to become somebody’s pet, would you?
Wild animals live in an open space such as jungles without any influence with outside world. Wild animals live in a small or big group.
Wild animals find their own food and well adapted to their environment. So wild animals cannot live with humans in a small cage or house. Wild animals are not like dog or cat which can buy at pet shops.
I will have to agree with everyone else that has replied before me. Wild animals are exactly that wild and should stay that way. I do not have a problem with them being kept in zoos as the handlers are trained to look after them. In the hands of those that know nothing about them not a chance.
Wild animals should not be kept like pets. I agree with those that has commented on this before me.
For those who like Wild animal it is their choice and their interests to have them as a pet. They have to provide food and comfortable environment for the animal.
One of my hobbies is raising animals such as dogs, cats, birds. But I am afraid to raise wild animals. Fear of falling prey to wild animals
It’s crazy to have such animals as pets, I think they can even spread diseases to humans.
I have no problem with that, as long as they comply with the legal procedures and ensuring that their part does not harm other people. In the first time, a dog was a wild animal to human, but then, there were a group of people who started to adopt a wolf. As time goes on, the heir of the wolf become friendlier to human. It goes on until people accept the dog as a pet.
Wild animals are not pets and they shouldn’t be treated as such. It’s against the law to raise any type of wild animal in captivity.
I personally don’t like pets. I can’t support what I detest. I hate dogs, cat etc, but, it does not mean I can harm them, I don’t just like to be around where they are, because I consider them harmful.
I don’t buy the idea of using wild animal as a pet…is just like one risking is life.
Many of them carry diseases that can infect you and family’s members. It is also illegal to raise wild animals as a pet.
It not good ,some animals are dangerous to live with like donkey’s.Its violation of animals rights.In this situation who will be a man and wife .
Animals should be left in the wild as its their natural habit. If an animal has been domesticated then its a different matter or if the animal is an orphan and cant be realise to the wild.
I think it’s okay to raise wild animals as long as they are well cared for. But, be careful if you raise wild animals. They can show their wild nature to humans
Having seen how Wild animals suffer living with people in the city, i don’t encourage anyone to raise wild animals as a pet in the city. They can also bite and transmit diseases to the family.
I agree with you Leno. Beasts can show their ferocity to humans. The animal can bite and attack a person.
I think it’s a barbaric act because we have domestic and wild animals and therefore, people should observe that difference.
The commonest domestic animal Dog is a not welcome in my house not to talk of owing some animals like Lion, Tiger or bear as pet. These kind of animal can harm kids when they are hungry.
I agree with your opinion, Kenneth. Raising wild animals like that can be dangerous for children. Maintaining a snake is not recommended even though it is not venomous.
I can not have wild animal as a pet. As matter of fact, I hate animals being it wild or domestic animal
It has never crossed my mind, it’s the most dangerous thing to think about doing.
It’s illegal and dangerous, wild animals must be free in the forest where they can develop their abilities in a natural way. They will never feel comfortable with humans at the same place.
I have always mentained that wild animals should be left in the wild to live their lives uninterrupted.
To develop all its abilities and skills wild animals need to be in its natural environment they used to be. They will certainly not develop their abilities when they are raised in a city. They can also bite or pass on some diseases to the family.
I agree with all who believe that wild animals should remain in the wild and that they should not be treated as pets. Wild animals are apart of eco systems and they are called “wild” animals for a reason and humans should not try and interfere with them and the natural way that they are intended to live and that they should be admired from afar and be protected against captivity.
Taking wild animals in captivity is not a good option, it is illegal and dangerous for you and your family. It will also the animal because it won’t be able to develop all its abilities and skills as in Its natural environment.
