I'll presume you'd say no. So our difference is about putting animals in the same category as humans. Not about the free market, but nice dramatic try.
Want to see my drama...pets are companion/protection slaves. They are sold, imprisoned, shackled, trained, etc. against their will. Like past human slave owners, animal slave owners think their slave is part of their family. A happy slave isnt a slave. Bull.
Like human slaves, animal slaves will try to escape if they can. That's why animal slaves have to be minded when outside. Let your front door open and let them decide. They will leave if given the chance. Like human slave owners, animal slave owners think it's cruel to let slaves free because they don't know how to live free.
So the 12.5% that have decent owners are STILL slaves that will have their wills crushed so the owner can have some companionship. Pathetic.
Animals should not be sold as pets (including zoos)...because it is slavery.
