- Alice Dixson shared a video clip of her with a black leopard on Instagram
- She was petting the wild animal and it looked harmless and tamed
- Some netizens however pointed out that the wild animals should be released to the wild where they belong
Alice Dixson shared a clip of her petting a black leopard. The wild beast looked calm and tamed while the actress pats it from head to its back. She named it Blackjack.
The actress seemed to have foreseen some of the reactions that might arise with her post, so she explained through a lengthy caption.
"I already know what many of you are gonna say “ these beautiful creatures should be out in the wild” etc etc. Even if I agree - it will not stop some to still purchase, domesticate or keep as pets."
She also compared it with some other domesticated animals which were once wild.
"If you think about it... dogs, horses and other animals were all once wild before they were tamed ... so let’s agree to disagree and let people be - so long as they are not hurting anyone ya? Walang basagan ng trip yo! Happy Saberday!"
With this said, some of the netizens commented discreetly to show their protest. There are some who also wished to have a wild animal as a pet.
A netizen sarcastically said, "Yes walang basagan ng trip. BTW would you know were I could get a slave these days? Ang hihina kasi ng mga slave ngayon, plus government says we have to pay them? Duh, slave nga eh. Walang basagan ng trip ha"
The comment prompted the actress to respond. "It’s because of stupid comments like these that make it difficult for me to respond to yun mga insightful & matitino. Maybe that’s why you hide under private bogus accounts so others don’t know how vacuous you are. "
Another Instagram user pointed out that it has to be sedated for her to be able to hold it to which Alice replied, " No he was not sedated. Blackjack is used to being around people so he can be very calm."
