We should have exotic pets

No, we should not have exotic pets. My name is Debater_100 and I am here to debate this topic.
I will present one pillar in the first round to support my case. My first pillar is: most exotic animals are dangerous.

Big cats (pumas, leopards, etc.) have caused 164 human injuries and 21 human deaths. Exotic primates have caused 129 human injuries. In total, in only these two categories, that is 273 human injuries and 21 human deaths. Woudn't you want these animals in the wild if they were causing this much damage? More tigers (most of which are endangered) are kept as pets than in the wild. If we want to conserve species, we shoudn't be keeping them as pets!
Thank you and vote opposition.

Exotic pets are great pets because, you don't need to walk turtles and ferrets, but I understand some are dangerous but some aren't

I will present the second pillar in my arguments. My second pillar is: the animals are being harmed.

If you check my source, it will tell you the statistics. These exotic animals are being harmed. I will use my example categories (big cats and primates) again here, although this time showing the detrimental effects to animals. Big cats have been injured 8 times, and have been killed in 55 separate cases. An example would be when a malnourished Bengal tiger and 208 weak dogs were found in "J.B. Precious Pets". The tiger, for his age and size, should have weighed around 400 pounds. Instead, he weighed only 175 pounds. Primates have been injured 7 times, and were killed 30 times. This is not good.
Thank you and vote opposition.

Sorry... I couldn't get on to the debate. It was an "unexpected server error".

We should have exotic pets because it is a learning experience like with ferrets and turtles
