and all politicians are crooked. But I do understand your point. To me, it seems the real problem is with public perception and has very little to do with exotic pet keepers in general. If one idiot buys a tiger and keeps it in his apartment, many people will view all exotic pet keepers as being that irresponsible. Honestly though, we are a perfect target for the media. We're a minority group and we enjoy keeping unusual animals that many people have nightmares about. We're exactly what they're looking for in a creepy story.
