Act against cruelty to stray Dogs in India
This petition had 3,644 supporters
In an era where animal cruelty has become a norm, inhuman acts against animals have become a regular news in newspapers and social networking sites, we demand for a stern and inflexible law to stop the torture.
There are a number stray dogs in my society, who have never caused any severe harm to people around. They feed on the leftovers that people throw out. But, there are a few tilted "human" minds present here too, who stone these dogs, beat them with sticks, sometimes as a punishment for pissing on their bikes, sometimes for sitting under the shade of their cars and many times simply out of fun. Is our fun this cheap?
Unfortunately, most of this rowdy population comprises of young boys. When told not to do so and scolded for doing the same, they indulge in fights and are supported by the their elders, who apparently thinks, "They are dogs, they are meant to be beaten."
Sadly, there is no strict law against animal cruelty in our country. The prevention of cruelty to animals act, 1960, simply lets the guilty walk away with mere fine of rs.50 or an imprisonment of three months. And moreover, the police never takes these kind of cases seriously for many of them are either not used to heeding such cases or are short of knowledge regarding the same.
We demand a strict act and severe course of punishment so that people hesitate in treating animals in such hazardous and inhuman ways. Your help and support in the cause can bring relief to many furry friends, for they too deserve to live.
