Kelly Ann Walz, of Allentown, Pennsylvania, was mauled to death by her pet black bear. Kelly reportedly had a pet black bear, an African Lion and a Bengal Tiger, all of which she kept in cages at her home. Walz was cleaning out the cage, had her back turned to the bear after giving it some dog food when it attacked her. It appears that a neighbor came in, shot and killed the animal. Kelly Ann Walz was 37 years old. (Link)
Not sure if the Allentown area gives out licenses for these types of pets but why is this allowed?? There is no reason that animals of that nature should be kept as a domestic pet.
Man and Animal have different behaviour though according to the Scripture, there are people that are without mercy – born as a natural brute beasts, animal in manner, attitude and gesture.
2 Pet 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption:
Bringing exotic animals inside the house as a pet is very dangerous. I have a friend who love his pet so much. And because of his attachment to the animals, when one of his pet died, she weep and mourn more than her relative that recently passed away.
Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
There are people out there who needs your love and affection more than the animals that you loved so dearly. After all, if we need a kidney for a transplant or a blood for transfusion, we definitely need a donor, but not animals.
