I have a dog and 2 cats... both of which are DOMESTIC animals... not WILD animals!! A chimpanzee is a WILD animal, even if it has been born in captivity. Thousands of years ago, the wild cousins of today's domestic animals, were habituated into living with humans so now we have domestic animals that are nothing like their wild cousins. The domestic animal relies on humans. Chimpanzees are WILD!
In order to have a chimpanzee as a pet, one has to be taken from the wild and bred in the last few years as thousands of years ago, people didn't domesticate them (thankfully!!!)
I do NOT eat meat but what has that got to do with anything?! That's not the issue being discussed! If you want I could go into one about the meat industry... but as far as I am aware, no one is talking about eating animals here?!
A zoo life will never be OK but its better than living in a persons home. In a good zoo, animals are given the chance to display natural behaviours, live within a natural group and not be treated like pets! In a persons home they will be punished if they show natural behaviours like aggression and dominance displays, they will never live in a natural group unless you have about 20 comprising of dominant male and many subordinates. And they will be treated like a pet... until they are caged when they become unhandleable!
I have a life. My life consists of educating people and saving animals from a horrid existence. I have devoted my life in saving animals. I think this is one of the most worthwhile things you can do with your life! I am not "in your life"... I am in the life of every animal that I have helped. Please show respect for these animals as they should never be pets.
I'm glad this website is just a scam as none of you should ever own a single animals if this is how you intend on getting them!!!
