'I think most people know that pumas aren't big cats, they're very dangerous animals,' said Darryn Hill, a former wildlife conservation bureau who said the series of reactions. .. However, he adds that some people may think that they can keep puma as a pet, even though they know that puma is dangerous.

Jerod Davis, a senior biologist at the Wildlife Conservation Department, points out that pumas are wildlife and that keeping them as pets is illegal in Oklahoma. 'Wild animals are unpredictable and it is very dangerous for both animals and you to keep them in your house.' 'Wild animals can take care of themselves much better than humans,' he said.
