There is just something about exotic pets that people insists they should have. Not only do they think they will have no issues with raising them, but they think it’s some kind of status symbol. All the time, people get monkeys, alligators, different snacks, and all sorts of other crazy things. The real question is, should they be ALLOWED to have them? One person was attacked by an exotic animal, and lost a limb! This is a prime example why people should stick to normal household pets!
According to Yahoo, Wallace Weatherholt recently lost his hand to a 9 foot alligator! While this alligator wasn’t a pet, it is a prime example why these animals are dangerous and should be kept in the wild. According to the story, “hung a fish over the side of the boat and had his hand at the water’s surface when the alligator attacked.” The crazy thing is, he is actually getting fined for illegally trying to feed the animal! These laws are in place for a reason!
If you are not supposed to even feed these animals, why should people be allowed to keep them? Other animals, like pot bellied pigs, might be cute to some people. And for others, they are just a mess and annoying. While they don’t attack, there isn’t really any good reason someone can come up with to get that as a pet rather than a dog. They just think they are being cool and different. While I don’t agree with just conforming just for the sake of it, I don’t think there is any reason to get some kind of crazy pet. What kind of crazy pet does your neighbor have?
