Rant about extremists
I love animals more than anything in the world and even I understand that proper care and enclosure aren’t slavery and torture and that educational programs aren’t “an invitation to keep exotic animals as pets when they should NEVER EVER be pets”.
Because telling kids snakes aren’t dangerous and they shouldn’t keep them is of course like telling them “go buy ilegal snakes and care poorly for them and then release them into the wild so they can destroy the environment”. (Sarcasm)
I’m just so tired of PETAlike extremists.
Animals and people CAN coexist peacefully.
Education IS IMPORTANT.
Proper responsible exotic pet’s husbandry is perfectly fine.
If you keep telling people that they have to stay the fuck away from animals, how will you teach empathy? I think many people can change their point of view of an animal just by looking it up close.
Like those “I hate cats” people that suddenly loves them after spending some time with them.
