But it is not only wild animals who need our protection. In our country, dogs are poisoned, cows have been burned with acid, and countless other animals across India are abused every day. While penalties for cruelty to animals under the Wildlife Protection Act 1972 and the Indian Penal Code are higher, the highest penalty under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 is a mere maximum of Rs. 50 for a first offense.
You can help animals.
Act now to call for stricter punishments for abusing animals.
