Yep, we will have to agree to disagree. IMO, there is a huge difference in keeping a domesticated animal vs a wild animal. A zebra is definitely a wild animal. I have a background in animal control, and also volunteered for years for various rescues. Yes there are the occasional success stories about folks keeping exotic and unconventional animals as pets, but generally it does not work out well for the "pet". Most people do not have the time, knowledge, or commitment needed to successfully keep a zebra. Sure, there have been saddle trained zebras. And you can geld them. But it is not like owning a horse & the ad for this particular zebra "gee, it's sooooo cute and you can bring it in the house!" does not sound like they are exactly committed to finding it a GOOD home. Just my 2 cents.
