Real-life Stories on exotic pets
In Allentown, Pennsylvania, the Walz family thought that naming a 350-pound bear "Teddy" would mean that it forgot all it's natural instincts. They found out he didn't when he attacked and killed 37-year-old Kelly Ann Walz. This happened while she was cleaning his cage while he was loose. They kept Teddy on one side of the cage while the other side was cleaned. The bear was shot and killed while it was on Kelly Ann.
These stories show that is why humans shouldn't keep exotic pets.
