They are wild animals, they should be in the zoo..

If you have ever seen these creatures in the wild and appreciate them you would never want to capture them. In the North West of Western Australia I have seen budgerigars flying, hundreds at a time, at speeds of up to a hundred miles per hour. how could you deprive these creatures of their freedom? My neighbourhood has parrots, cockatoos, some little blue birds smaller than the English wren, kangaroos, koalas, duck billed platypus and many other species. It should be a crime to imprison these creatures. I enjoy them in the wild which is where they should be.
Best wishes,

wild animals like the raccoon skunk and squirrel and all wild animals should be seen running free not kept as domestic pets it is so cruel

No, and I wouldn't advise anyone else to either. True animal lovers, like the owners of the new pet shop mentioned in the EM, will, of course, know what they are doing. But for too many people these animals are just a fashion accessory, to be disgarded when they are ill/aggressive/difficult or expensive to keep.
