Dear Ms. Michel, [<email@example.com> Karen Michel, Publisher and Editor, Madison Magazine]
Your recent article is likely to fuel demand for exotic animals. This isn't a good thing. Commodifying animals never is, but exotic animals are particularly vulnerable to the dangers associated with the pet trade.
The images in the article reinforce the notion that animals are mere objects and properly displayed and sold like glittery jewelry.
Here's a more sober look at the issue.
When species numbers are dwindling, when recognition of the planet's other residents is more needed than ever, Madison Magazine runs a glitzy story objectifying the most vulnerable among us. Jeez.
