On 20th May, we headed to Nubra Valley, Ladakh, one of the stops on our trip. In Hunder, we witnessed the double humped camels being abused by their "caretakers". This was done by:
Using the camels to make money from tourists.
Camels were controlled through ropes piercing their nose. These ropes were pulled, tugged on by these caretakers. As you can see in the pictures and videos, there were hundreds of people there who were riding camels hour after hour. These animals were not taken care of, in fact, they were shaved from places on their bodies. They were constantly abused for money from humans.
People who care for animals should identify this situation in dire need of attention. Please sign the petition so that WWF can take the necessary action required.
