You ever hear some of the strangest things on the news about how people keep the oddest animals for PETS to live with them OH MAN. I've heard of some WILD off the wall ones I just think WHAT ON EARTH are they thinking don't they KNOW them are NOT GOOD pets. O.K lets take for one people have snakes right? or even SPIDERS, how bout wild dogs like a Hyena wolves coyotes these AREN'T good pets. I've even seen people with apes & Gorilla's & omg but folks lets be REAL here REALLY that's not right we don't need to make these a pet when their not. I think those that have them kind of animals need something to do in their lives & think about what they are doing cause that's just not normal folks. Check this out & tell me something JUST isn't right here I mean good lord please wake the hell up & get yourself a PET that won't eat you.

One of the girls at work said she wanted one of the cougar cubs my wife saw earlier this week as a pet. For the time being she has settled for a fish. In the past she had a really big dog and she'd do that again if she was in an apartment where it was allowed.

@koopharper O M G I hope she STAYS with the fish, cause them BIG WILD cats can really kill you if they're not taken care of right. I'd like to have a black panther too but I don't think that would be the right thing to do to the cat OR myself am I right?

@sugartoes Her dream is to become an animal behaviorist. She doesn't believe it will ever happen. There is an emotional element in this for her as well. Her very big dog kept her alive during a very dark period in her life. The concept of having a pet that would keep anyone from messing with her has its appeal.

@sugartoes That is just ridiculous! Makes me so friggen angry! I think it's fine for people to adore animals so much that they want them as a pet BUT to actually go ahead doing it is wrong. I often say I wish I had a pet monkey or a raccoon but I don't actually want that to happen. The idea is fun but I wouldn't be selfish like that. To take sweet animals away from their real homes and to be put into a human home. Humans lives in houses, wild animals live outside!
