Our early inhabitants were hunter-gatherers and the forests sustained them with the game. (Pictured is the Visayan Spotted Deer.) It was a means of killing an animal for food shared with the community or laying traps which the hunter would watch for hours or days or stalking prey in the forest.
The dog is called Ayam in Panay, but the use of the dog for hunting gave the term Pang-Ayam, meaning with the dog.
