Take action against the killing of dogs in Nagaland

Dog killing has been an age-old tradition in Nagaland. These dogs are killed for their meat. But before their killing, they're treated in the most inhumane manner possible. They're skinned alive, beaten, their mouths are stitched to shut them up, they're starved, tied with ropes, stuffed into sacks and finally killed in front of other dogs who await the same fate. Dogs are now being smuggled into Nagaland from places like West Bengal and Assam because Nagaland has almost finished it's dog population. 

It's thought more than 30,000 dogs are killed by smugglers - who stitch their lips together to keep them quiet during transport - every year in Nagaland, India, alone. Some of the dogs in these dog markets are even stolen pet dogs as they still had collars on. But pet or not, no animal should ever have to go through such cruelty. The consumption of dog meat is already against the law in India, as is the cruel transport and treatment of animals, which violates animal transportation provisions and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. But following up on the same seems to be very negligent as backed up by the atrocities the dogs have to endure currently.

The killing of dogs in this absolutely inhumane manner, skinning them alive, beating them, stitching up their mouths, starving them and then finally killing them is highly unacceptable and unethical.
