Travel Tips : Animals are no toys
I just saw a photo of a tourist holding a cute monkey. What makes me again thinking of how much I hate to see those people on the street carrying some kind of cute animal and other people pay money to have a picture made with them and that cute animal. It not only happens with cute animals, it happens with tigers, snakes, elephants, birds and whatever. Animals are living things, like you and me they are not toys! Those animals do not have any freedom of choice. The chance that those animals are well taken care of is very, very small. Some of those animals are even endangered species. Sometimes it is even against the law to have them. If you really like the animal, buy it and give it a home like it should have.
So there is only one thing to say ....DO NOT DO IT!
