Coconuts Manila Animals

We all just can’t get enough of cute cat videos and their other furry friends, so here’s our humble contribution to making the webz a better place. Coconuts Manila regularly reports on animals, whether about an eagle celebrating her 25th birthday or a seven-foot python falling from the ceiling. Animal-related stories are surprisingly popular, especially when posted with irresistably cute photos. We’ve reported about horses, roosters, farm animals, tamaraws and even exotic pets. Manila is overflowing with stray dogs, and most of the time, we post their stories to ask for help. There are also controversial cases where animals make it to the headlines after receiving bad treatment from their owners. Luckily, animal rights groups always make sure to speak up. Always check this space for pet-friendly malls, animal gatherings, and adorable videos.
