It is often claimed by animal rights group that exotic pets are dangerous, that they spread disease, encourage poaching and the illegal wildlife commerce, that they are unsuitable for living in captivity, and a slew of other bullet factors of ‘dangerous stuff’.

I do know that the workers at the Edmonton Valley Zoo do their finest to take care of Lucy.
