The video was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan on his Twitter handle with a caption asking people what they would name this tax? He also added a word of caution that said it's lovely to see animals getting fed, but such sympathy-based conservations can be an enemy to wildlife. He added that this behaviour could make them get used to accessing food, which will lead them to roam around the roads & outside their habitats, and that can end up in a number of accidents. He also urged the people not to feed the animals and let them help to stay in the wild.

A user said that humans have to pay the tax as they take away foods that belong to the animals, while another jokingly replied to Kaswan's tweet and stated that it would be called a sugarcane tax. A third user expressed his joy and said the video just made his day.
