It also could apply to humans as well. We're technically still wild and shouldn't be in captivity. So I guess good bye daycares
fish are different but I won't get any agreement on that in this forum I'm sure

I think we are on the verge of roving bands of feral children already

I mean have you ever been to a Chuckie Cheese?

My uncle raises pot bellies in florida, one of the females escaped. A few years later he went hog hunting and shot her. Only way he identified her was by the tag in her ear.

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.

Yet there is an upside to the pig problem: their taste.

"What struck me is that it wasn't sinewy," Miller says. "It was quite good, quite tender."

BACON FOR ALL!

Wild animals taste WAY better than domestic ones.
Cook a farmed duck, so much fat comes out. We had wild duck, not a little drop of fat came up. (Like when you boil an animal and those little oily bubbles form on the surface.)
A wild animal is running around working it's muscles all the time. Farmed pigs are kept in cages that prevent them from moving.

If all these domestic animals can turn wild, why not a fennec that is already wild but living in captivity?
