In the US, 5000 Tigers - only 3900 left in the wild.

There are 10,000 Burmese Pythons in the Florida Everglades. These are a result of a build up over many decades and generated from escaped pets. With no natural predator the have decimated the local wildlife driving many species to the brink of extinction.

The Burmese Pythons are a result from a hurrricane............

No, Karen. I'm not supporting that.

Okay but the ownership of these animals isn't what is driving them to extinction. Private ownership could theoretically save them from extinction. I mean if I had had a northern white rhino chained up in my back yard, they wouldn't be extinct.

Women are not endangered, and sadly, are seldom exotic.

The hurricane destroyed the snake house that was supplying the snakes to pet shops but that only a part of the problem snake owners were dumping the snakes in the glades before that storm.
Seems the snake owners were ok with pet snakes until they began to get big. There should be a law that prohibits any exotic animal or reptile be brought into America. South Florida not only has the snakes to deal with but also thousands of Iguanas

Funny I suspected people must be dumping them for numbers to get so big!
I just hope they don't start importing bats. Get some from West Africa & China and allow them to breed and you could end up with a highbred Ebola/Corona type virus pandemic that would wipe out millions!

They do more harm than good.
