A PETA India undercover investigation reveals filth, disease and cruelty in India's fishing industry.
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?"
If you need to report a situation involving an
animal in immediate danger, please call our office immediately on 022 4072
7382. If you are calling after hours (between 6 pm and 9:30 am Monday through Friday),
please call our emergency number: (0) 98201 22602. If an
animal is injured, please remain with the animal until help is secured.
If you have witnessed an illegal act of cruelty
to an animal, please document all the relevant details and file a First
Information Report with the police immediately. If you have witnessed an
illegal act of cruelty to wildlife, please also contact a forest officer via
your state's forest department. Their contact details can usually be found
easily on the internet. Animal protection laws can be found on the Ministry of
Environment and Forests website (http://moef.nic.in/index.php) under
"Rules and Regulations" as well as on the Animal Welfare Board of
India website (AWBI.org).
You might also need to contact a veterinarian
or animal protection group close to where you live for urgent help. If you live
in India, veterinarians can be found by using the search engine at Justdial.com,
and government-employed veterinarians can be found by contacting your state's
animal husbandry department. Veterinarians experienced in working with wildlife
can be found through your state's forest department.
Directories of animal protection groups throughout India can be found at
the links listed below. Please note that PETA has not had the opportunity to
work with every group listed and cannot guarantee quality of service, so please
stay with the injured or wounded animal and
make sure that the animal is properly treated and tended to or put out of his
or her misery, not left to languish.
Never allow an animal to remain in danger.
Please contact PETA any time you need further assistance.
