I have been hearing of this for a long time,but more frequently now, of some illegal purchasing or capturing of "pets" . These "pets" can be in the category of birds, dogs, and even insects or small animals. So everyone! Before you buy a "pet" from someone, or before you attempt to capture and keep these animals, do you ensure that they are not off limits in your country? For instance, I know that PitBulls are illegal in some parts of the world but many people still do keep them. So, what measures do you take in order to ensure that you're not illegally purchasing the "pet of your dreams"? Also, are you concerned about this practice? Or is it that it doesn't really matter either way?
