The Dodo is a massive, viral video social media site that reaches millions of people with their content. Unfortunately, a common occurrence within their content is showing people who have rescued or found wild animals (usually as babies). Instead of these people handing them over to a wildlife rehabilitator, which is the law in most places and with most species, they turn them into pets.
Once the wild animals become too aggressive, they are then either dumped outside where they most likely can’t survive or they are turned over to overburdened wildlife rescues — where they face state sanctioned euthanasia if they are too tame to return to the wild. When people see wild animals getting lots of attention on social media, they are much more inclined to selfishly keep an animal for the same attention instead of doing what’s right and turning the animal over to a wildlife rescue.
