Mayweather—No May & No Whether With Animals
Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather made headlines for a different reason this time. He was pulled in controversy after posting a picture of an Indian baby tiger on Instagram which he received as a Christmas present from one of his friends in Moscow—Russian Capital.
His act of having pet tiger outraged many people across the globe who shared the platform of social media inscribing his deed as inhuman. People advocating for animals’ freedom triggered verbal war against him in social media. Here below are some of the tweets tweeted by renowned personalities in favor of baby wild cat:
PETA—largest animal rights organization in the world—asked Mayweather to be a real champ for animals and allow his "Christmas present" to be moved to a wildlife sanctuary.
The wall of social media is filled with thousands of such comments advocating in favor of this little wild cat.
DNA Level C Boxing Club in this regard appeals Mayweather to introduce himself as real hero. He is a role model of many boxing trainees so it is his social responsibility to act in appropriate and acceptable manner.
Everyone is aware that existence of this world is based on interrelation and interdependence among all species. None and nothing can exist in isolation. Extinction of one species is a severe threat to human being.
The population of tiger has been decreasing dramatically in past century. According to recent survey, their population is at around 4000 in the world. Habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation and poaching are the main reasons to push tiger in the verge of extinction. Hence, it is our responsibility to protect tiger and other endangered species. And to pet tiger in such circumstance is an act to condemn. So, DNA Level C Boxing Club appeals Mayweather to give this rare species to wildlife sanctuary. This is an opportunity for him to prove himself as social hero.
