Ocelots truly have the most remarkable coat pattern. Sadly this makes them a target for the pet trade and of course they are hunted for their skins. It's hard to understand why more isn't being done to protect these and so many other small cat species from the wretched pet trade. Honestly domestic pet shelters are full of animals that need a home so why do people want to keep an animal that has every right to live it's life in the wild. Why are laws not in place to protect wild animals from stupid people who have no idea how to care for them properly.
