I’ve Never Understood Why People Want Large Exotic Animals as Pets

A woman had a chimp as a pet.  She taught him to drink wine from a glass.  At some point perhaps he got Lyme disease.  The woman’s friend came over and the chimp attacked her, seriously wounding her.  The cops came.  The chimp attack a  cop, who then shot him several times.  The chimp runs back to his living quarters and dies.

Stupid People.  Poor chimp.

Just get a dog or a lizard, not a chimp or a tiger.  It makes no sense.

  1. a CNN commentator made a good point about the impossibility of ever truly domesticating a wild animal, no matter how much a person might want it to to be domesticated

  2. Agreed. Some animals are simply unacceptable as pets. Unfortunately people will continue to buy them simply for their “cuteness” factor.

  3. This just gave wingnuts like Michael Medved an opportunity to play the 911 tape, and a cartoonist from the NY Post to make a very bad “joke.”

    Otherwise, people will just keep being stupid about chimps and other exotics.

  4. Thanks for the link! They are just adorable!

  5. I just noticed — one of comments is:

    “I want one!”

    Ugh.
