In some American states it is completely legal to keep a wild or exotic animal as a pet in a suburban home.

This practice can threaten a neighbourhood's public health and safety as well as animal welfare. Wild animals can attack their handlers and spread disease, and the average pet owner cannot provide the care they need in captivity.

Do you think there are any advantages to keeping a wild animal as a pet? Or do you think more should be done to combat this practice in the United States?

Wild animals are meant for the wild, not the house. It does them no good being domesticated, and if they don't get domesticated, then they suffer stress, and the owners and locals are at risk. Animals are not toys or play things. Nor are they clothes or medicine.
