Have you ever caught an animal from the wild? Save it from utter destruction only to learn that it is a baby? Many folks, especially animal lovers, get drawn from the inherent cuteness of a creature and decide that it would be a good idea to take it home, care for it, and turn it into a pet. No. It is often forgotten that these animals are born crazy. Wild animals have certain predispositions for certain behaviors, special needs that may not be available through conventional means, and an inherent fear of human beings. Over time, these attributes can become very dangerous.
Bringing wild creatures into the house is contrary to the law in many different states. Various different species are protected by both federal and state law. Statutes are passed primarily to protect the animals from inadequate care and unnecessary death. There are several things that cause these deaths, and they are also very persuasive reasons why wild animals don’t make good pets. Here are just a few:
Believe it or not, many wild animals held in captivity die, because of the fact that their caregivers do not know how to give proper car. Lots of the wild animals held in captivity have special needs which aren’t exactly the same as domesticated animals.
2. Deficiency of Proper Socialization
Wild animals require an ability to associate with their own kind. Through this procedure the animal can develop the skill sets necessary to survive on their own out in the wild. If the creature hasn’t learned these skills, it has to either stay in captivity or die. This is especially unfortunate for animal which are much larger than usual or more aggressive that what humans are used to.
3. Deficiency of Fear of Human Beings
Wild animals are usually fearful of human beings, especially if they’ve never encountered them before. This panic generally keeps them safe from hostile humans, and other unintentional harms.
No matter how cute the animal may be, keeping a wild animal isn’t a great idea, not only for your health, but also for the health of the animal. The best thing to do when you encounter a wild animal is the report the sighting to the appropriate authorities, who have the experience and knowledge to take care of the situation appropriately.
