BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS
On May 27, a carcass of a pregnant wild elephant was found in Mannarkkad forest division, Kerala. After the forest department began the investigations, it was found that it was a brutal case of animal abuse. The elephant was fed fruits laced with explosives by the locals. This severely injured her mouth, tongue and jaw. Eventually, within a week she died a painful death.
This was not the first case of animal cruelty. We often hear such heart wrenching instances and after expressing ephemeral anguish we forget about all this.
The various forms of animal abuse include activities such as greyhound dog killing, bullfighting, use of animals in circuses and film making, industrial animal farming, etc. Such practices result into death of numerous voiceless innocent souls.
Here, a question arises that why do such inhuman episodes take place.
Due to the loopholes in our judicial system many such convicts are not punished. As a result, the impassive people do not fear law and such atrocious incidents frequently take place.
Unlike violent crimes against human beings, various cases of animal abuse are not compiled by the state or federal agencies. The number of wildlife crimes reported and compiled is just the tip of the iceberg.
Even if the cases are registered and convicts are caught, the actual judgement takes a long time due to awaiting trials and appeals. Often, these convicts are granted bails and are acquitted due to lack of strong evidences.
We,a responsible citizens of the society, need to raise our voices for the voiceless souls so that such ordeals are not encountered again. The animals are the beautiful gifts of nature and these creatures also deserve respect and justice just like we humans do.
Hopefully, the frequency of these atrocities will reduce and the merciless people responsible for them will be according punished.
