New Delhi: People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India CEO Dr Manilal Valliyate said that Indian Government must strengthen the laws to protect animals, following an elephant’s death in Kerala and cow injured due to ingestion of explosives in Himachal Pradesh.
While addressing the media, he said that such incidents are not just restricted to certain regions but are happening all across the country. PETA receives more than 100 similar cases everyday. We are getting many complaints in everyday basis. The complaints are not only about cows and elephants but for many animals.
The PETA is instantly urging the Indian Government to strengthen the laws that are established to protect animals.
He furtherly said that as per the current laws set out against animal cruelty, the perpetrator would only be charged Rs 50,000 as a fine. That is equivalent to no punishment at all.
In addition to this, he said that these injustices against animals through explosive has been going on for quite a while. But for6 the first time, it has received such public attention.
