Owning an exotic / non-domesticated animal is unethical and the caretakers SHOULD be held accountable for the exceptional care that animal requires, their partcipation in exotic animal trafficking and the inherent risk they're putting viewers by displaying a wild animal as a pet, and NOT be enabled by fans because the animal is cute and seems happy... ...vs animals raised in captivity CANNOT be released back into the wild and demanding they be released is ignorant to the animal's needs and what SHOULD happen is an enriched life in captivity, educating the audience why they should NOT get a wild animal despite their cuteness and supporting nonprofits that care for captive exotic animals... ...are things that can and do exist at the same time. This might be niche but man I am MAD seeing a 20 something Tiktoker toting around a BOBCAT and all the comments being like, "Blah blah blah y'all don't know her maybe she rescued him." OH SHE DID?? SHE RESCUED A WILD PREDATOR IN HER CUTE LIL APARTMENT?? INTERESTING. But THEN people who know something's off don't just ask casual questions nooo, they demand, "Wow you need to release this animal IMMEDIATELY abuser!" YOU ARE NOT BEING HELPFUL! THE CAT WILL DIE IN THE WILD! WE JUST NEED PROPERLY SITUATED CAPTIVE SPACES AND NOT PETS! AH! Okay /endrant, again apologies if this is niche but dang I just love animals and there's a lot more nuance to this situation than most people care to see.
