Be Careful When Rescuing an Exotic Pet

By Joshua Simms TEXT SIZE Minus Plus

Some people just happen to have the most unusual tastes! What may seem very scary to people is termed exotic and alluring to others. If you happen to be part of the latter who owns any sort of exotic pet, there might definitely be those unpredictable moments when your exotic pet suddenly needs rescuing. Trust me, you wouldn't want to provoke the opposite of what you are trying to do in the heat of the moment. Here are some few items on how to safely rescue your exotic pet.

Never rescue with aggression. This will threaten your exotic pet and may most likely worsen the situation. No matter how long you have trained your exotic pet, never underestimate the old nature of your pet. There was this one incident of a man from India who trained a tiger cub. It grew old and tasted blood, and unleashed its old nature and had to be killed. The better way is to be very gentle. Try to calm yourself down before trying to rescue your pet. You might be the one in need of rescuing if you don't!

Assess the situation properly when performing a rescue operation for your exotic pet. If you feel iffy about the situation, trust your instincts and don't go for it. There are clearly some situations which would require you to not get overly emotional and think rationally. This is one of those times. Sometimes, an effort to save an exotic pet who doesn't want to be saved may pose a greater risk for you. So make sure you can gauge the situation properly before you take any action. Make sure that in every attempt to rescue a pet, especially an exotic type, you have already counted the cost of saving the animal. It might distress you in the long run to have saved an exotic pet and will have done you more harm. One can never underestimate the importance of this.

Maybe the exotic pet is new and you haven't acquired the skill to predict its moods in threatening situations. Or maybe you don't exactly own a pet but you saw an exotic-looking animal walking along your backyard. Of course, in this case, the very best thing to do is to call the nearest exotic pet rescue group. A library wouldn't be the most practical answer given the potential urgency of the situation.
