Most of Michael Jackson's exotic pets are in different homes are have whereabouts unknown.
MJ was known to keep a large collection of wild animals as "pets." Most notably a chimp named Bubbles.
Bubbles was one of the lucky ones who ended up at a reputable sanctuary.
Some of the less lucky animals were two giraffes who ended up at a pseduo-sanctuary where they died only a few weeks apart.
It is believed they died of exposure to the cold or malnutrition.
His alligators and a python live at a roadside zoo. Thirteen flamingos went to a zoo in New Jersey. Two orangutans went to a private owner in Connecticut.
If Michael Jackson, the king of pop, couldn't afford to care for these animals, then it's amazing that anyone else thinks they can take care of an exotic animal.
