Recently the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) has acted on the ongoing cruelty done on animals which is happening in the city. The AWBI has filed a request to the district collector to take action and to ban the animal-drawn vehicles in the city.
These vehicles include horse-drawn Tongas and even bullock carts. It was seen during the recent Eid that in various areas number of horses were made walk for miles and that too with a loud sound of DJ’s. Every time the animals are subjected to suffering. Somehow, in some or the other way the animals are tortured for which no one is raising voice against them.
Activist, Ankita Shah had lodged a complaint on the cruelty against the animals, they are made to walk for miles without a break or without providing proper food to them, it is also a usual thing to use whips on them to make them walk for few more hours, nose ropes and other torturous techniques are also used on to them.
“All these actions totally violates the rules under The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960, which are the rules formed under the Maharashtra Animal Preservation Act, 1976, along with other municipal laws and directions of the Supreme Court to provide animals with an easy living” said Shah.
