Born 2 B Wild
Whats Wild Belongs in the Wild....
Trying to Prevent Exotic Animals From Becoming Pets Since 1980
It Really Does Happen...
Or in 2006 when Animal Control officers seized 19 dog wolf hybrids after they were found chained to trees with no food and no shelter.
Or in 2012 Zanesville OH, when 39 escaped exotics were shot and killed by police officers.
We can prevent disasters like these from happening...
Dangerous for Animals...
- Herpes B
- and Monkypox
All of which are communicable to humans
Many times an exotic animal kept as a pet has led to the humans death
If the animal is a large snake their owner or caretaker is often strangled
Sometimes mauled by large mammals
Many States require you to have a license to possess an exotic animal and nothing else.
Exotics that are released into or escape into the wild often become invasive species and compete with natural animals for food
The diseases they carry can devastate entire ecosystems
Have a Good Day and Remember, The Wild Belongs in the Wild!
