Illegal Animal Trades Are A Bigger Deal Than You Think

By Richard K. Noots

Vice recently did an exploration on the illegal animal trade that not only exists, but thrives in black markets. Generally speaking, people who are rich like exotic animals to showcase their wealth (think Mike Tyson and his tiger). Unfortunately, animals like this can’t be domesticated, otherwise they’d already be normal pets. While owning a tiger or Leopard may be cool, the chances of you getting mauled to death go up astronomically if you own one. So, if you’re thinking about getting one of these animals, DON’T. Your life will be one hundred percent better, I promise you.
