MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles®) – The killing of Cecil the Zimbabwe Lion by American dentist Walter Palmer has generated worldwide outrage and has focused attention on the ethics of hunting as a sport.
Thousands of miles away from Bloomington, Minnesota, where Palmer lives and holds his dental practice, there’s the opposite end of the spectrum as far as treatment of animals are concerned.
In the Philippines, animals and people coexist in perfect harmony. In contrast to the barbaric practice of lion hunting by Americans and others, Filipinos are being praised for allowing tigers into their homes, as pets.
It’s more fun in the Philippines, where killing is unnecessary.
