Several million years have begun the domestication of wild animals. Once fierce enemies and rivals turned into friends and helpers. Excavations of primitive people showed that even in the Mesolithic, almost all those species that today can not be imagined in the wild can be tamed. But even nowadays people seem to continue the work of their ancestors, bringing in the house more and more wild and unfit for living species. We will tell below about the most unusual animals that a person today is trying to tame.
Wolves are close relatives of ordinary dogs. It seems that it is quite easy to make these animals your friends. However, the animal still remains wild and unpredictable. An example of this is the story that happened with the 50-year-old Sandra Piovsan. A flock of wolves has lived in her house since her birth. Although relatives warned that such a neighborhood is dangerous, the woman did not pay attention to it. According to her, wolves give their love and devotion much better than dogs. However, the education of predators at home ended tragically – Sandra’s body was found in a cage with wolves, with numerous soft tissue injuries. Favorite pets zagryzli his mistress.
In nature foxes are cautious and fearful, they avoid a person. However, if these animals are grown from birth, they can become excellent pets. A 10-day-old fox was brought to one of Diechilling’s pet stores in England. Nesbvyshish immediately liked the owner of the establishment Stephen Edinkton. He decided to grow a ginger animal, and then let him go into the forest. Wild, but pretty and defenseless creature became part of the family of Stephen. Lisenka fell in love and gave the nickname Miss Snooks. When it was time to part with the pet, the animal returned in a couple of hours. Edinctons made several attempts to introduce the fox to the natural environment, but the faithful creature constantly returned to the people. At the same time, Miss Snook hammered into a corner, making it clear that she was offended by the hosts. According to Edinkton, the chanterelles resembles a cat like a cat – the animal sleeps on a soft blanket, loves scratching behind the ears and sharpens its claws. And there is a chanterelle chicken, cat food and for some reason coffee beans.
For some, these creatures are soulless killers, and someone sees them as pets. For example, Vicky Loving from Melbourne brings up the home of the African narrow-necked crocodile Johnny. The woman tells that the reptile crawled to the threshold of her house in 1996, which frightened a lot. She tried to drive away the crocodile, but he did not want to leave. As a result, the animal remained at home, having lived there for 15 years. Vicki says that this is a affectionate pet, who constantly asks for his hands. True, the landlady was forced to start filing the crocodile teeth, as in the heat of the game he had several times broken her hand. Johnny loves fried chicken wings, bacon and frozen rats. The hostess must constantly be on guard, because if you step on the pets, then he immediately attacks. Therefore, the house is constantly lit. Vicki was not afraid to leave the toothy creature alone with her young son, Andrew is already 16. The house also houses lizards, a turtle, a horse and a couple of crocodiles.
Big cats, like their small relatives, have long been perceived by people, and as pets. However, the owners should know that they are dealing with strong and dangerous animals. Even the operation to remove claws is almost impossible, because damage to the skin of the finger pad can lead to the fact that the tigers will start walking wrongly. And the result will eventually be paralysis, because a proper walk is needed for a heavy beast for normal development. However, there are those who do not see the danger in such cats. For example, the 66-year-old Norman Bouvald actively fought for the rights of people to keep tigers at home as pets.The man himself at home was just stung by a 300-kilogram beast. Once, during the harvesting of his cell, he took and bitten his master to death. As a result, the naive Bouvald himself suffered, and his pet, who became guilty of killing a man.
As pets, lions are not treated as often as tigers. However, there are such daredevils who keep the king of beasts in the house. One of them is the Czech Jaroslav Cann. The owner of a small pump company owns Leo’s lion and even goes out with his pet for a walk, driving him on a rope. I must say that the domestic lions only in photographs look so kind and complaisant. Not so long ago, one hand-beast attacked his owner without warning and killed him when he simply cleaned the cage. The wife of the deceased discovered traces of the tragedy and immediately called the police. As a result of the “domestic” lion, the sheriff was forced to shoot.
There are few people in the world who are so fond of skunks that they are ready to even keep their homes. 51-year-old Deborah Caprina is engaged in professional breeding of fluffy, but smelly animals. True, at the sight of her with the animals on the walk people start screaming and running away. But these are very clean beings, who apply their protection in exceptional cases. Every morning the hostess gets up at 6 am to feed all her pets before work. In total, her house lives at times up to 80 skunks. On their maintenance each month leaves on 700 dollars. Animals love vegetables, fruits, chicken, dog food, cheeses, oatmeal. The breeder considers the issues of proper feeding to be important, since in the case of a wrong approach, the animal will begin to lose bone mass and die.
These unusual animals are becoming more and more fashionable in America. Oregon resident, the American Angelina Goodwin led herself at once two anteaters, I will give them the nicknames of Stevie and Paul. The woman says that her pets are very smart. If they want to eat, they just run to the fridge, open the door and eat human food. Animals respond to their names, love to play with each other or with rubber mice. Although in nature anteaters eat only insects, Goodwin tells us that in her house animals eat everything, including soaked socks. The animals also liked the cake prepared with minced meat, yoghurt, ketchup and cheese specially for the first birthday of Paul.
These forest animals also found their place next to the person. In the old days, bear cubs were even specially taken away from their mother to tame and force to do things unusual for the animal. And all for the pleasure of people! Today, bears get home, becoming victims of accidents. Naturalist Casey Anderson worked in an organization to rescue rare animals. In one of his campaigns, he stumbled upon a small 10-kilogram grizzly bear that spun around the poacher’s mother, shot dead by poachers. The kid would have died, but the naturalist took him to his home and named Brutus. Since then, it’s been 8 years now, Brutus has grown into a 380-kilogram monster who loves to dabble in the pool, devour potatoes and play with his savior. The bear has even his place at the table, he as a best friend of Casey made a witness at his wedding.
Buffalo can usually live in a person’s house, occupying a paddock or a separate barn. However, in Canada there is the Southner family, which is one of the largest animals in the world holding at home. Two-year-old Bailey Younger weighs 725 kilograms, living with a married couple. Of course, there were some problems. So, the pet was impossible to accustom to the toilet, so “surprises” sometimes appear directly on the bed of the owners. Hulk runs around the house, loves to suck the hand of his master. Bailey is a lazy beast who loves to eat well. In the house, the bison did not waste time studying the corridors, but just struck the passage from his room to the kitchen.Wanting to walk, the animal just goes to its goal, not noticing the doors. It’s good that the Southers, tired of the repairs, made a door opening outwards. The hosts adore their pet, and after all, he will grow and gain weight for another couple of years.
Of all the unusual pets, the hippo is the most. This is a very dangerous creature, according to statistics it is the hippos that kill people in Africa more than anyone. In Hoedspruit, in South America, a huge mammal weighing more than 2.5 tons has been living in the same family for 10 years. It all started with the fact that during the floods in May 2000, Tony and Shirley Gibbert rescued a newborn behemoth. Good people understood that the baby would die without their participation, so they decided to go out and let her go free. Behemoth was called Jessica, the girl quickly learned to respond to her name, flying into the room and circling around the savior. The pet grew quickly, they decided to build a shed for him. However, Jessica did not want to leave the house, having decided to sleep on the parents’ bed. In addition, the hippopotamus loved to watch TV and eat from the dinner table. Gibberts tried to close the doors, but this did not become an obstacle to the two-ton beast. One day, Jessica was so eager to greet the host coming from work, that she even tore down the wall. When the hippo turned 5 years old, he was still evicted on the porch, now next to him on the mattress sleeps a friend pitbull terrier. When Jessica turned 11 years old, she still nailed to the herd of hippopotami, starting an independent life. Nevertheless, the animal returns to its favorite rookery almost every evening. Jessica rejoices at the massage of the hostess and falls asleep sweetly.
Experts say that these animals are among the most unpredictable. After all, they can attack a person even in a dream. However, the 32-year-old writer and photographer Shreev Stockton does not agree with this opinion, she has been raising the coyote house of Charlie for more than two years. Such an unusual pet gave her boyfriend Mike, who worked as a hunter. The man was supposed to shoot wild animals that got too close to the human dwellings. One day the hunter found a small newborn coyote in the hole. Mike decided not to drown the baby, but gave it to his lover. At first Shreve decided that this was an ordinary puppy, and the cavalier did not dare to dissuade her. When the woman took the pet to the veterinarian, he “rejoiced” her, saying that she was raising a dangerous animal, a coyote. On the offer to put him to sleep, Stockton refused. As predicted by experts, the coyote ate up all the animals as a result. Survived, however, only the cat that was feeding Charlie. The woman herself is afraid that the predator will attack her in a dream, so she made a fenced enclosure for the pet and held electricity there.
