Does anyone not see the difference between these two statements:

"Since 2006, an AVMA policy has urged lawmakers to ban private ownership of wild and exotic animals because they pose a significant risk to public health, domestic animals, and native ecosystems and species."

and

"The AVMA recommends limiting or prohibiting private ownership (as defined below) of indigenous and non-native wild animals that pose a significant risk to public health, domestic animal health, or the ecosystem, as well as those species whose welfare is unacceptably compromised."

IMO, the first statement says that all private ownership of exotics should be banned, while the second statement says that only those exotics that pose a significant risk should be banned.

Also, IMO, the AVMA is not our enemy, and they do not always side with HSUS. See AVMA responds to HSUS criticism
