Advertisement Hey, I'm doing a research paper for my English class on the exotic pet trade. In the paper I'll be discussing various problems associated with it(ie, dangerous animals, animal welfare, and environmental impacts), discussing current laws, as well as trying to represent the interests of those in the trade. It's a 6-page paper for an English 102. My last English class! Yay!! As part of the paper I need an interview, and the teacher said it would be OK to do an internet interview. All you have to do is to respond with your answers to the questions. I'm looking for a variety of responses, but not all responses will be used. Here they are: 1)What is your experience with exotic animals? What kinds? How many? How long have you had them? What ones do you consider “dangerous? Are you strictly a private owner, or do you also work/volunteer with them? 2)Why exotic pets? Why not just settle for a cat or dog and trips to the zoo? (Iwant to see why other people like them. ) 3)What do you do in order to decrease risk when interacting with your pets? Do you think that increased education for people considering exotics will help? Do you think that taking classes should be necessary, and would it help? Why or why not? 4)Do you let visitors or emergency help personnel know you have exotic or dangerous pets? What would be your plan of action if one of your dangerous pets got loose? What would you do if it attacked someone? 5)Do you think there should be increased restrictions on what kinds of animals can be pets and/or who should be able to own them? Why or why not? 6)Do you think further regulation of the exotic pet trade would be effective? Why or why not? 7)Do you feel sufficiently informed about laws regarding exotic and/or dangerous pets, and did you have any sort of difficulty getting access to this information? If so, what kinds? ---- That's it. thanks in advance!
