Why Wild Animals Make Bad Pets
It would probably be illegal. You could get sick. You could get hurt. Taking them from the wild can endanger the species. You can't provide the right home for them. It is against the law to catch and keep wildlife. Almost all native birds and mammals in Oregon are protected by state and federal laws, and it is illegal for you to keep them. These laws exist because wild animals have special needs and it is difficult to keep them healthy and alive in captivity.
Do Wild Animals Like Be In Cages
Wild animals need to run free. Look for your self they do not like to be in cages. Zoos have birds that cannot fly, and tigers that cannot hunt. Surely you can learn more about wild animal by watching them in their natural habitat.
