Well, I don't think any wild animal should really be a pet. However there are special occasions. If an animal is injured or born and relient on humans, it can not live in the wild, so it must be kept in captivity, but not nessicerily as a pet. Any wild animal is exactly that, Wild, it should not be treated as a domestic cat, then accidents happen and the animal is killed, just because it is wild. Now if he were kept in an enclosure, maybe on a reserve, he wouldn't have been killed. I know someone who has a Serval, actually two. Well, they are illegal to have here, so they get locked up in a small bedroom with no light (the window are blacked out so people can't see in and see the Servals). They NEVER get to come out, oh wait, sometimes she sneaks them in her garage if company is comeing. They have never been outside. She hardly ever pays attention to them. Now, I ask you, is this a life for a cat? To be locked up in a spare bedroom? Also, not only are they Declawed, which is an extremly bad procedure, they are also defanged, so there go two of their defenses. Anything can make a good pet, from rats to cows, but should a wild animal be a pet?
