I routinely feed a group of wild magpies near my work and am able to hand feed some of them to the point that my workmates joke about them as my "work pets".
Similarly there are people who will feed other native or wild animals, such as ducks or squirrels, to a point beyond normal human-wild animal interactions.
Would questions about these pseudo-pets be on-topic?
Such questions that might be contentious would include:
- What should I feed wild animal X?
- Can I safely hand-feed X?
I'm asking this question not because I necessarily want these questions, but more to help identify the community's position on them. I think there may be some value in some questions, especially as the difference between an exotic and wild animal is how it was raised. But it's just as important to clearly define what's off-topic, as well as what's on-topic.
However, having a solid community stance on these types of questions, we can defer to will help when more users start using the site.
