Victory for Animals: Madhya Pradesh Bans Buffalo Fights

Posted on by PETA

After learning that buffalo are being forced to participate in fights until they are bloody, injured and exhausted, PETA sent an urgent letter to Shri. Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Honourable Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, asking that the fights be stopped. The Animal Husbandry Department immediately directed the district administration to intercede to stop the illegal fights, in which countless bulls suffer and die.

“It is sad that these animals are made to suffer in the name of ‘entertainment'”, says PETA India campaigns coordinator Sachin Bangera. “You can see fear and confusion in the eyes of the buffalo as they try to flee.”
