      Where as AWBI have double standard, why they enrolled docking tail dogs
      and feathers chopped birds being an offense under the PCA Act, 1960.
      Pelican being an protected animal under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972
      was registered with out proper documents like ownership and no circus is
      able to transport camels with out tied their legs, integrity of AWBI and
      CZA officials are doubt full, where as AWBI deputed inexperienced so called
      gifted position by the Chairman co-opted member was deputed to kill
      investigations. All circuses failed to keep regular veterinarian, blind
      Hippo is allowed to continuously abused / transported in sub standard
      cage / unhygienic conditions. AWBI registered animals with out keeping in
      view concerned legislation's, unnecessarily animals are granted to Jumbo
      circus to abuse for their personnel gain and profit because Jumbo circus
      was allowed to perform two at Panipat and another one in
      Hence OIPA in India - demands

      Petition Organizer

      Big scandal in the history of Indian circus exposed by the OIPA in India and PFA Haryana. Jumbo circus have two branches with out approval, which is against the legislation's concerned but AWBI, AWD, CZA and all state CWLW are cheated by the Jumbo circus management, one branch of Jumbo circus at Panipat and another unit playing since 30.09.2011 at Nagampadom Maidan,Kottayam, Kerala. CZA sent a Veterinarian from Delhi Zoo to inspect all performing animals but concerned deputed veterinarian never visit second illegal units, where as AWBI deputed raw person co-opted member to kill the investigations. OIPA in India demands immediate rescue of all abused animals, FIR and arrest of all members of the management including owners, WCCB / CBI may be asked to investigate big scandal, how AWBI / CZA allowed these blunder crime against performing animals, tainted official be booked.

    4. AWBI and CZA failed to moniter the Jumbo Circus performing animals

      Abhishek Kadyan
      Petition Organizer

      AWBI registering animals for no reasons : 8 Elephants, 13 Horses, 13 Dogs, 1 Hippo, 15 Parrots (Species not disclosed), 3 Camels, 1 Pelicans at initial stage for Jumbo Circus again AWBI registered 2 Donkeys, 1 Goat, 2 Turkey, 13 Dogs again, 8 Persian cat and 1 Emu but it is reported that Jumbo circus doesn't have all registered animals at Panipat, might be rest of animals are performing with other unregistered circus in Kerala for personnel gain and profit / might be hired by some one and it could be possible due to failure of Administration of AWBI and CZA, very poor administration and coordination between both agencies and they failed to perform their duties / to monitor the animal abuse, where as performing animals are being abused by all the circuses. Shut down ineffective agencies - Naresh Kadyan, Rep. of OIPA in India / Founder Chairman, PFA Haryana.

    5. AWBI issued half backed instructions to the Deputy Commissioner, Panipat

      1. Which kinds of Parrots they have, might be exotic as Pelicans and blind Hippo. Do you checked and verified there papers as per law concerned. Did they comply with the legislation's concerned during shifting even, when the AWBI member submitted the report about this Jumbo Circus then why so much delay to cancel the registration and why animal abuse is still going on and I doubt any further action again after receiving the desired report, why AWBI is not coming forward to lodge a FIR against these offenders, abused animals be confiscated?
      2. Iron ankush is banned then why they are using it by the every circus, owners of the captive elephants including Jaipur haathiwalas and AWBI promoting them?
      3. Docked tail dogs they have then how AWBI issued registration for them and why it was not ordered to confiscate, publicity materials enclosed to review for appropriate action?
      4. How many pre transport permit has been issued the AWBI and how you allowed them to transport performing animals vi

    6. AWBI in deep sleep..........

      Abhishek Kadyan
      Petition Organizer

      Whole World supporting this issue but AWBI in deep sleep..................
      Some unanswerable questions before AWBI;
      `1. Why AWBI recognize blind Hippo as performing animals, might be renewing regularly with out knowing health condition of the animal, after knowing the facts, AWBI is not cancelling the registration along with the CZA?.
      2. Docked tail dogs might be registered with the AWBI..............double standard, why these dogs were registered and AWBI not yet comes forward to rescue the dogs nor gave any authority to do so, on their behalf.
      3. Animals were shifted with out prior transport permit but why AWBI silent on this issue?
      4. Inbreeding in dogs and cats are going on, why CZA ignoring this facts?
      5. Iron ankush has been used on elephants, why the enforcement agencies are silent?

    7. CZA sent Veterinarian today with out eye - dental surgeon to inspect hippo

      Abhishek Kadyan
      Petition Organizer

      Blind Hippo in trouble and its teeth also needs treatment along with eyes. Animal was found with out care taker in a congested box with dirty water, no space for exercise and movements. The Manager of the circus asked Naresh Kadyan, complainant to go away and he was not allowed to be present during Veterinarian inspection, where as a Medical Board including eye and dental surgeon shall be constituted to give natural justice to the blind hippo. Exotic birds performing with out any record, which needs investigation by the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (Govt. of India), cats and dogs inbreeding also continuing against the legislation.
