Every day in West Bengal animals are beaten to death, neglected, or forced to struggle for survival. We all know that human are most powerful, intelligent & knowledgeable creature in this nature. Yet we are busy in providing our supremacy over the others all the time. One of the easiest ways to prove it is to torture poor animals. Even some times, we do it just for fun. And finally, we forget the universal truth that all living creatures are part & parcel of this nature. Each one has a specific role in this nature, which cannot be overlooked. Animals are left in unsanitary conditions with no food or water; they have little to no hope as they live out their days without the compassion they deserve. Some are found and rescued, and are given the chance to experience how great life and human can be; whereas others aren't so lucky. To grow as a nation, we must fight for these abused animals' rights and severely punish irresponsible owners and heartless abusers. It is up to us to speak for these creatures that lack a voice, for who will if we don't?

One of the first steps in protecting animals and creating effective anti-cruelty laws is to know what animal cruelty actually is. There are two categories: passive cruelty and active cruelty. The first involves acts of omission, meaning the abuse happens as a result of neglect or lack of action. Passive cruelty might seem less serious, but that is not the case; it can lead to terrible pain and suffering, and ultimately death. Examples include starvation, dehydration, inadequate shelter in extreme weather conditions, and the failure to get medical care. Passive cruelty is sometimes due to the owner's ignorance; so many animal control officers will first try to educate neglectful owners on how to properly care for animals before giving them a citation or placing them under arrest.

Active cruelty, on the other hand, is better known and disturbing. Sometimes referred to as non-accidental injury, this type of abuse involves purposefully inflicting harm on an animal in order to feel more powerful or gain control. Active cruelty against animals should be taken very seriously since it can be a sign that a person has serious psychological issues and may commit more acts of violence – possibly against humans.

For example Several reports have been recorded in places such as barrackpore ,chandannagar ,maheshtala and kankurgachi staling the attacks on the innocent stray animals and on the animal lovers as well who try to ensure their safety.

In barrackpore,a lady got assaulted while trying to rescue a stray dog under attack. When she protested & went to police for legal action, the culprits attacked her and harassed her in every possible way. She filled a number of complaints at Titagarh Police station and each and every time they failed to protect her, what she got in reality is mere harassment, verbal abuse as well as physical abuses.

Another incident took place in chandannagar while a woman was beaten with her clothes stripped off because she had been feeding the stray dogs.

It's not only up to the legal system to ensure that communities across the state are aware and educated about animal cruelty. There are plenty of things everyday citizens can do. The simplest action for people is to take care of their own pets and learn the facts so they can educate others on proper animal care. Another easy way to help is by donating to or volunteering at a local animal shelter. Contrary to popular belief, volunteering doesn't require a lot of time; simply going in a few hours a week helps tremendously. Finally, by writing letters you can remind your local lawmakers that animal abuse is a real problem that needs to be addressed. For this reason, we need to stand beside these poor animals; we need to fight for these abused animals’ right. So, we need all of those people who are our friends, our relatives, our neighbors to stand beside us.  Taking a few minutes to support this worthy cause not only helps animals; it allows you to feel proud about standing up for something so important to society.

Although there are rules like The Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960 and newly amended Indian Animal Welfare Act, 2011 to make such cruelty as a punishable offence, but still we think mass awareness & mass co-operation are the strongest weapon against such cruelty.

It is our responsibility to be the voice for the creatures who cannot speak up for themselves. As a nation, we need to make it our priority to come together and ensure the safety of our beloved voiceless animals. As Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

So please be a responsible human being and sign the petition for humanitarian reason and pass it on so we can have a greater chance of stopping torture on those voiceless. Please help them, because they need you to care for them.
