"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
The suffering of the animals in the “exotic” trade does not end with the capture, transport and pre-sale captivity. No matter how well meaning, humans who purchase these animals are often incapable or unprepared to provide for the needs of the species. Many die from inadequate care. Animals who remain in captivity as pets become dangerous to other animals or to humans. For instance the case of the Chimp who attacked and tore the face of his owner’s neighbor. Often people try to return unwanted animals but end up abandoning them to inappropriate habitats or without rehabilitation. If the animal does survive, it can damage the ecosystem of the area by introducing an animal that is not a natural predator...thus proving deadly to natural species in the area either through predation or disease.
"You have to love animals for what they are or leave them alone. The best thing you can do if you love them is leave them alone and see that other people do too."
-- Pat Derby
