It became a hot issue in social media where people post articles regarding animal being abused by owners, celebration in Nepal, and etc. As this became a trend, it’s really an irony of it stays as only a trend, and not creating awareness to most readers or viewers, as they just act like luckers. There is indeed a fine line between sympathy and empathy, where one only represent feelings, while the other represents action of the feeling. Although Malaysia made a good step having the Animal Welfare Bill 2015 after a good long time, but it takes more than that to achieve the utter objective with the actions of the citizens.
