I'm just gonna copy and paste what I said in the other thread...
I simply don't agree with keeping any
wild animal as a pet, endangered or otherwise, if you cannot provide a home that closely mimics their natural environment. With smaller animals that's easier to do, but how many wolf owners can give their pets the equivalent of the 1,000+ miles wolf packs roam in one year? How many big cat owners can give their pets the space and habitat they would live in, in the wild?
Why do you think the best zoos in the world spend thousands of dollars to create habitats that are true to the animal? To make them happy, and content, and give them the closest possible thing they would have to a life in the wild.
It's very, very sad to me that it's not enough to appreciate a beautiful animal, but we want to confine it and keep it in our
world, for our enjoyment. Because given the option, I highly doubt this would be the wild animal's choice.
