Former Pakistan’s cricket captain Shahid Afridi, also known as ‘Boom Boom Shahid’ is a well known name and has many cricketing fans all over the world.
But after Shahid shared pictures of a Pet Lion with his Daughter on twitter, people went crazy and criticized him for chaining the animal.
However, people went on to say that the Lion belonged to the Jungle and not at his home and that too in chains.
Afridi Pet Lion
Great to spend time with loved ones. Best feeling in the world to have my daughter copy my wicket taking celebrations. And yes don't forget to take care of animals, they too deserve our love and care 🙂 pic.twitter.com/CKPhZd0BGD

I’m absolutely appalled with what #ShahidAfridi is doing. You can’t keep a #lion out of its natural habitat all chained up & then claim that u r loving animals. The lion looks weak & so done with life. I feel so bad for it. #PETA #AnimalRights #cricket #Pakistan pic.twitter.com/IiphTknlhX

Shahid Afridi has a pet lion who is confined at his home and it's chained, this is so barbaric and inhumane poor creature should be in its natural habitat, running & hunting . where are animals protection organisations. Fuck your wealth & fame if it doesn't give you compassion

Also, Shahid said “Great to spend time with loved ones. Best feeling to have my daughter copy my wicket taking celebrations. Animals deserve our love and care :)”
So, are you an animal lover? What do you think?
