Now a days you can see, a number of crimes against animals specially stray dogs.Animal's right is issue of social justice. Unfortunately we doesn't have any strong law against this cruelty until the animal is dead. We need to amend our existing laws. For example the existing law stipulates a penalty between Rs 10 and Rs 50 for any act of cruelty such as beating, kicking, torturing, starving, overloading, overriding and mutilating an animal under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. Rights of animals are the most underrated topic in India till the date. Several times Supreme Court has passed judgements. In a landmark case of Animal welfare board of India v A.Nagaraja &Ors, the Honourable Supreme Court held that “Parliament was expected to make a proper amendment of the PCA Act to provide an effective deterrent to achieve the object and purpose of the Act and for violation of Section 11, adequate penalties and punishments should be imposed. Parliament, it was expected, would elevate rights of animals to that of constitutional rights, as done by many of the countries around the world, so as to protect their dignity and honour.”
