    Should People Be Allowed to Keep Exotic Animals

    Fox news is doing a poll. As of right now we're losing. 73% of the people think We should not be allowed to keep exotic animals at our home. OK reptile nation it's time to show them how many of us are out there and what our opinions on the subject are.

    I'm not trying to sound all bad axx or anything, but come try to take my snakes. I'm a vet, military not medical. And a bunch of sit at home stuffing their faces lazy people clicking that we shouldn't be able to do this or that shouldn't count for much. Sorry for the rant.

    Re: Should People Be Allowed to Keep Exotic Animals

    Their answer for Yes doesn't exactly fit my answer so I said Other.

    While I believe people should be allowed to keep exotic animals, I don't necessarily believe exotics are not dangerous. A large constrictor can be dangerous. A macaw can be dangerous. Even some exotic fish can be dangerous. Does this mean we shouldn't be allowed to have them, no!

    I believe that as long as someone has the financial, mental, and physical ability to keep such an animal and can house and care for the animal appropriately, then they should be allowed to do so. Perhaps for the more dangerous species (like lions, tigers, and bears Oh My!) there should be a permit system where you have to have hands on experience and have your enclosure inspected prior to purchasing the animal.

    Sadly it only takes a few to make us look incompetent and like our pets are dangerous.
