A fennec born in captivity will never survive in the wild either. ;)
You're right about not changing your mind.
Honestly, I've made my journey from PETA to where I am now. I've been on both sides of the pond.
All animals are dangerous- even your fish pose bacterial threats to your health. My snake is a hazard, my dogs are hazards, birds and hazards. The difference to me between a cat scratch and a tiger attack is that I can scruff the cat, wear thick leather gloves, throw a towel on it's face, whatever, and then I can put my body weight on it and restrain it properly. Tiger? Not so much.
Someone with all the same knowledge as I could easily be against everything I'm for.
I'm pretty much decided that I want to devote my life to these animals by being an exotics vet, I'm enamored with birds in particular.
Edit: This is going REALLY fast. Jeez.
Cats, pigs and goats will all immediately become feral again.
You can take your average landrace pig that was kept in a heated barn, it gets out that summer, it will have a full bristly coat of hair come winter. That's really fast.
