A status symbol
Owning exotic animals as pets – for example tigers or cheetahs – is seen as a status symbol in many Arab countries, but new laws have tightened the odds of individuals owning wild animals, and now you risk fines or imprisonment if caught.
Denayer was quick to take down the photo’s post, but according to English media Angry comments should be welcomed in the comment field beforehand.
“What’s with the extra football players and the cruelty to animals?”And “Tigers should live in the wild, not be put on a leash to enhance the ego of a pathetic man.” And “You are a terrible person”Read a selection of comments.
