Often the author reads various cases related to pets such as abandoned pets owned, attacks on pets against employers and especially the tragedy of small children that occurred due to attacks on pets against employers.
Through this paper, the author wants to make animal owners aware of the decision before having a pet and be wary of pets.
Here are some of the most common omissions people make as pet owners:
1. Keeping animals only because of emotional factors,
There is no commitment in raising animals, after getting a pet then taking care of it for a while, but after getting bored the pet is not taken care of and just dumped with perfunctory care.
Animals are also living things that need to be cared for starting from providing cages and cleanliness, food quality must be considered, given medicine if the animal is sick, bathing it for a certain period of time, spending time playing or taking walks around the environment, and so on.
If you are not ready to put in sufficient time, energy and capital to meet the needs of your pet, it is better to give up your intention.
2. Assume all pets are tame.
Letting pets that have the potential to harm humans free to roam without protection such as chains or cages or approach the animal without protection because it considers the animal to be tame and is unlikely to attack us as its owner, for example, you have cared for it since childhood.
This assumption is very wrong.
Because no matter how cute or tame our pets are, they are still wild animals without reason and mind, relying on instinct.
3. Keeping pets that are classified as wild and have the potential to threaten human life
All large animals must be considered a THREAT, especially up to 1-2 meters and above. Examples of animals classified as wild: dogs, especially doberman-herders, wolves, lions, tigers, bears, elephants, snakes especially cobras, crocodiles.
imagine if the animals are in a frenzy, are you able to provide resistance, especially if the attack is carried out very suddenly, of course you will receive various wounds all over your body.
4. Leaving young children to play unsupervised near pets
For parents with small children always pay attention to your baby, always accompany and be alert when children play because even cute animals like dogs can be dangerous for small children, never let them play near pets,
5. Considering the animals kept by animals as calm, cute and harmless because they are vegetarians
