Watch the video that exposes the cruelty and suffering that go into every piece of leather, fur, wool, and exotic skin that you wear, then ask yourself and everyone you know, "Whose skin are you in?"
PETA India's History:
Compassion in Action
Founded in 2000, PETA India operates under the simple
principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for
entertainment. Through investigative and legislative work, public education,
animal rescues, eye-catching demonstrations, celebrity involvement and outreach
with our youth division, PETA Youth, PETA India has drastically improved the
quality of life for many animals and saved the lives of countless others.
PETA India's investigation into the Indian leather
industry exposed cruel transport and inhumane and filthy conditions in numerous
slaughterhouses, and an undercover
investigation of dairy farms revealed shocking abuse to cows and buffaloes. Our
five-year investigation of poultry farms uncovered gruesome abuse, including
the live scalding, starvation and mutilation of birds, and conditions that
could lead to potential health hazards, including E. coli, salmonella and bird flu. After
investigating more than 30 zoos, PETA India filed a case in the Supreme Court concerning
the substandard and inhumane state of zoos across the country. PETA India also released an in-depth report and video
on the fishing industry, exposing violations of laws, environmental
devastation, risks to human health and horrendous animal suffering.
Following PETA India's campaign against keeping
animals in zoos, the Central Zoo Authority banned the imprisonment of elephants
in zoos and circuses. After
exposing cruel conditions at the National Institute of Virology (NIV), PETA
India helped rescue 39 animals from NIV's laboratory. We have also received
assurances from numerous universities that they will stop conducting animal dissections in zoology courses,
and we successfully pressured the Medical Council of India (MCI) to
withdraw its requirement that medical schools in India maintain an animal laboratory
and use animals as teaching models. PETA India has also rescued numerous
animals, including lions used in circuses, goats in a laboratory, birds in the
pet trade and buffaloes on their way to slaughter.
