[email protected] 2018 An average of recent polls shows Gillum up by almost 3%.three men who attacked a sleeping stray dog in a temple in Junagadh with bamboo until he bled to death and Vellore medical students who tortured and impaled a monkey to death And these are just some of the many such cases The Bengaluru woman was let off on a fine of measly 1000 for brutally killingeight puppies However the order of the Magistrate court has been challenged ina higher court As for theChennai medical students who threw a puppy off the roof of a medical college continue to study medicine and are out on bail The trial is on but they are roaming free Thethree men from Junagadh who mercilessly beat up and killed a sleeping stray dog were arrested but released on bail immediately so also the Vellore students who tortured and raped a monkey Thestudentsare still on suspension from the college and have not been allowed to appear for their exams or continue with their academics However the man in Washim who mercilessly beat up and killed a grey langur was denied bail a record breakingfive times including by the Bombay High Court He is currently in judicial custody lodged at a jail This was possible only because the perpetrator was booked under the Wildlife Protection Act (WPA) 1972 which is much stronger than the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 However the WPA applies only to select wild animals that are protected under Schedule I to IV of the said Act The punishment for offences related to wildlife crimes is a jail term of up to sevenyears and a fine of upto 10000 for the first offence The offence being non-bailable in nature However the conviction rates have not been very convincing anda lot of illegal wildlife trade and crime goes unregistered and unreported The PCA Act is toothless as most animal abusers get away without facing any consequences The conviction rates are extremely low in animal cruelty cases and India has hardly seen anyone face any exemplary punishment for the dastardly acts committed by them in the past 60 years since the PCA Act has been enacted This signifies the need to urgently amend and strengthen the PCA Act to deter animal abusers from committing acts of cruelty to animals Like the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi once said "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated" Indianscertainly are not treating animals like they should be considering the fact that they are sentient beings who feel pain and have emotions just likehumans do Animals in India have been reduced to inanimate objects and it is the outdated laws that are to be blamed for All lives matter and hence it is imperative thatIndia not only protect fellow humans from abuse and torture but also animals who have been inhabiting this planet way before us Animalsalso have a right to live a life of dignity and respect as rightly opined by the Supreme Court In countries like the USA serious cases of animal cruelty and abuse like the ones mentioned above are investigated by the FBI Sadly in India it is not so Serious cases of animal abuse continue to remain with the local police stations and don’t even go to the crime branch let alone the CBI Foreign countries have understood the need of protecting animals through stronger welfarelegislations and it is about time India too follows the footsteps of these countries Cruelty to animals should worry everyone Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals often don’t stop there— many move on to hurting humans And the FBI has found that a history of cruelty to animals is one of the traits that regularly appear in its records of serial rapists and murderers A US study conducted over a 21-year period found that 70 percent of people who abused animals went on to commit other crimes and about two-thirds of them also assaulted a human It also found that 100 percent of individuals convicted of sexual homicide had a history of cruelty to animals And importantly another US study found that 96 percent ofthe offenders who had engaged in bestiality (sexual assault of an animal) also admitted to having sexually assaulted humans Examples of such individuals include Ameerul Islam who used to rape and kill dogs and goats before he was sentenced to death for raping and murdering law student Jisha in Kerala Convicted criminal Joseph Bateson of Northern Ireland— who allegedly sexually assaulted farm animals— was found guilty of 17 counts of gross indecency with a child and indecent assault after he sexually abused a six-year-old boy And American criminal Jerry Cook was convicted of cruelty to animals assault and battery following an incident in which he raped a dog—fatally injuring her in the process— and attacked the owner of a home he was burglarising Cook’s history of violence began nearly two decades earlier when he was convicted of first-degree rape of a human What’s more American serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer impaled the heads of dogs and cats on sticks In the UK the abuser of a child known as Baby P Steven Barker tortured animals including frogs whom he would skin before breaking their legs In India Veerappan was a poacher as well as a serial killer and the infamous Noida serial murders of children took place at the home of Moninder Singh Pandher who was fond of hunting The highest office of the judiciary the Supreme Court of India came to the rescue of the voiceless animals in 2014 It took cognizance of the need of an amendment to the PCA Act 1960 and very strongly and clearly directed the Parliament with the following in Animal Welfare Board of India vs A Nagarajaand Others: – "Parliament is expected to make proper amendment of the PCA Act to provide an effective deterrent to achieve the object and purpose of the Act and for violation of Section 11 adequate penalties and punishments should be imposed" – "Parliament it is expected would elevate rights of animals to that of constitutional rights as done by many of the countries around the world so as to protect their dignity and honour" Section 377of the Indian Penal Code is the only provision under the Indian law that specifically criminalises bestiality That’s why PETA India has requested that the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Law and Justice retain the criminalisation of sexual assault of an animal by a human being under Section 377 when amending the current wording to decriminalise sexual acts between same-sex partners and between other consenting adults Section 377 is strong enough and provides to punish acts of bestiality in a manner that would deter others from committing them However the problem lies in its enforceability The section is often not included in the chargesevenwhen cases of sexual abuse towards animalsare reported Many police officers are not even aware that Section 377 applies to cases of bestiality and that it’s one of the reasons why such cases go unreported or unregistered Sexual abuse of animals is not uncommon Cattle in the dairy industry are often sexually abused by men who work in tabelas/dairy farms as most of them are away from their families and abuse animals to satisfy their sexual urges Multiple cases of cows and buffaloes being raped have been coming to the fore and there is very little we are doing to prevent such cases from taking place The number of cases of bestiality have seen a sharp rise in the recent past IntheJaipur rape case in which afemale stray dog was raped and filmed? north central
