Exotic Pets of California: True Meaning of Animal and Human Relationship

Description

People these days consider their pets as their "family" and show deep love towards them. However, one must question the origins of pets, and how pet industry began through captivating wild animals and forcing them to the human environment. This artwork was inspired by a recent ferret protest of California's ferret owners who supported the legalization of ferret owning in the state. They criticized the government for treating such innocent animals as criminals that disrupts California's ecosystem. They said they are doing this for their ferrets, but would a ferret want to live in the wild, or with "family"?
