Randeep Hooda is one Bollywood heartthrob who is known for his rugged yet suave looks and extraordinary acting skills. But there is one more thing that he is renowned for, and that is his love for animals. Last year, he had made news by adopting 9 ailing racing horses who had consumed plaster and debris out of hunger. An NGO had adopted them but their health could not be restored completely. Hence Hooda stepped in and adopted 9 of them proving his love for animals.
This time, the actor has again raised a concern on social media which is quite an important one for animals. He has posted picture of a tiger holding a plastic bottle in his mouth on his Twitter handle, bringing up the issue of land pollution affecting the forests and wildlife reserves of the country.
Here is the tweet by Randeep Hooda:

Randeep Hooda wrote that the particular picture of tiger posted by him is from the Ranthambore National Park of Rajasthan. This is why he has tagged state chief minister and BJP leader Vasundhara Raje in his tweet.
The picture has raised questions about the upkeep of the national park in the minds of the people who reacted to Hooda’s tweet. As per rules, littering is prohibited in any national park. Whosoever is found disobeying the rule can be penalized and/or punished. Despite all of these rules, there must be somebody who threw the bottle in the forest and it went unnoticed.
A tiger being spotted in a national reserve with a plastic bottle is indeed a serious matter. It also highlights the lack of awareness about environmental issues among people and their unwillingness to make efforts towards it.
As soon as the animal-loving actor shared the picture, reactions started pouring in. Some held the government responsible for the problem while others said that there needs to be a stricter checking and implementation of rules in national parks. Some others highlighted the need of citizens to be more cautious about the environment. Have a look at some of the responses to Randeep Hooda’s tweet below:
I don’t know why we call animals wild and dangerous and we call man advanced and civilised.

It’s admirable that you raised a valid point . Don’t you think that this is also responsibility of educated people who visit these parks?
