Great job by the vets, but wild an­i­mals should not be kept as pets…

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

Thanks to the cov­er­age by 7DAYS (‘Claws out for big cats’ – Oc­to­ber 3). Why should the wild an­i­mals be owned as pets, we can very well go to the zoo. These ex­otic an­i­mals are pro­foundly stressed, be­ing driven out of their nat­u­ral habi­tat and kept in a alien en­vi­ron­ment! Just be­cause they can’t speak for them­selves. Own­ing them as pets, bor­ders on an­i­mal cru­elty. There are many en­dan­gered species around us and in the world, which needs our im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion and con­certed ef­forts. One of the many is the Pan­golin, the most traf­ficked mam­mal in the world. Live and Let Live! Ap­pre­ci­ate the ef­forts of the Dubai Vets in al­le­vi­at­ing the pain and trauma of these im­prop­erly cared for and ne­glected ‘Ex­otic Pets’. It’s alarm­ing. Bhu­vana Dubai
