The video continues on to show what goes on during a day out with a best friend. There was even a view of them at the park!

Jackson must have been a fan of the swings, so with his snake coiled around one swing, and Jackson in another, Doofy gets a swinging lesson. “You gotta put your legs out, like this,” says O’Doherty to his slithering friend.

While the video gained a good number of followers, O’Doherty received an equal amount of criticisms, saying petting the snake the way he did is mere cruelty.

The question is, with the blurring dichotomy between animal domestication and cruelty, how is it possible to identify which is which?
