Exotic Pets Put UK Wildlife At Risk

The exotic pet industry is booming in the UK, with many people looking to bring animals other than the usual cats and dogs into their homes. However conservationists are increasingly concerned that the current interest in keeping racoons, skunks and even wild cats, poses a risk to our native wildlife. If these exotic species were to escape and establish themselves in our countryside they could devastate the fragile ecosystem in the same way that mink have done. Conservationists are calling for current regulations to be tightened up with an outright ban on people being able to keep certain species.
