SIES Zoology Department organized their first-ever department festival XZOOBEARANCE 2006, and PETA Youth was there. Our documentary of the cruel treatment of animals for leather was screened at the venue, and visitors had a chance to view a display of pictures from PETA India’s investigations of the transport and slaughter of animals for leather and meat. Street Teamers were present to talk about PETA Youth, distribute information about animal rights and our campaigns.If you weren’t at the event, and would like to get involved, please log onto http://www.petaindia.com/action/sign-up-to-be-an-activist.aspx.
Five human mannequins wearing furs donated to PETA for demonstration purposes by people who now refuse to wear the stuff spattered with fake blood occupied the foyer windows of the Burberry London store. Two of the activists chained themselves to the inside of the windows and had to be cut out by police. The action, which marked the launch of an international Bloody Burberry campaign, was taken after Burberry refused to shed fur from their collections.For more information please log onto http://www.bloodyburberry.com/

Generations taught the next that animals were gold,
Then why do we betray them when they get old!
It is considered wrong and bad when a child betrays its father and mother.
But when an animal gets betrayed people hardly bother!
Without eating meat your brains won trust,
Then why not turn vegetarian when non-veg is not a must!
Just for a wild moment think how an animal must feel,
If he was put on fire to become someone's meal.
Animals are silent listeners, who tolerate all our fuss,
Don't you think this butcher's mentality doesn't suit us.
Promise me you will treat them as brothers and sisters
And I will keep on spreading this message of love to others and Others.
Traffic stopped when PETAs elephant accompanied by activists carried an eight foot long petition urging the Maharashtra Chief Minister to ban elephants from the streets of Mumbai.
PETA has initiated a signature campaign to urge the CM to ban the entry of elephants in Mumbai following the death of the elephant who was hit by a truck in Chembur. Elephants belong in the wild, not in Mumbai. But the police were prompt to round us up for disrupting peace and for supposedly causing a traffic jam at the Gateway and we were taken to the Colaba Police Station - as was our elephant. But after a bit of drama, the Chief Inspector granted us permission to continue our signature campaign.
N. G. Jayasimha of PETA India told press Where are the police when the animals are killed on the roads? They have the time to arrest us. But they cant arrest those who make elephants walk and beg on hot tar roads in the city?Well said!

Here is another horrific tale of a poor elephant, stolen from her home in the wild, and made to work in the city, away from her family and all that is natural to her.
A 25-year-old elephant, Laxmi, was knocked down by a speeding water tanker on the Sion-Trombay Road in Mumbai. Laxmi suffered a fracture in her hind leg.
A passerby informed PETA India of the accident and N G Jayasimha, our Coordinator for Campaigns & Legal Affairs, rushed to the spot. It took nearly six hours before veterinarians, the police, fire brigade and locals managed to put Laxmi onto a truck to take her to the BSPCA hospital. She is recuperating now.
