Ban Cruel Transportation Methods of Cows in India

Target: Pranab Kumar Mukherjee, President of India

Goal: Prevent the inhumane torture of cows en route to slaughterhouses in India

Although some people in India consider the cow to be sacred, others are treating cows in cruel and inhumane ways every day. Red and green chili peppers are being inserted into the eyes of bulls that are loaded on trucks for transport. The peppers are meant to sting the eyes so badly that they are unable to lie down and rest. Ban cruel transportation methods of cows in India.

Transporters feel the need to keep cows standing upright in order to pack as many animals into a truck as possible. This transportation almost always leads to a slaughterhouse.  These journeys often last several days. There is no regard for the well-being of these cows because they are being sent off to die anyway. However, all living creatures deserve the right to live and die with dignity.

Not only are chili peppers used to control cows, but caravan drivers use other cruel manipulations too. Cows are often not allowed to drink or rest. They are beaten into moving on command, and tobacco is also used as an eye irritant. Sign the below petition to urge India’s government to outlaw cruel transportation methods of cattle and punish those who persist to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Mukherjee,

Cows have historically been sacred animals in Hindu culture, however many cows in India are being treated with the lowest of standards. There is much abuse in the trade and slaughter of cows, specifically in the transportation of cows from one area to another.

Red and green chili peppers and tobacco are being placed in the eyes of bulls to prevent them from resting. Caravan drivers feel it necessary to prevent cows from lying down in order to pack as many animals on their trucks as possible. Not only are these cows being shipped off to slaughterhouses, but they are being tortured on multi-day journeys on the way.

I am urging you to work with local agricultural groups to ban the cruel transportation methods of cows in India. Even if some inhabitants don’t believe cows are sacred, they still must treat them with the respect that every living creature deserves. You must stop the corruption that surrounds the cattle trade industry and punish those who defy the laws of humanity.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. So evil, so wrong, those that say boycott India are right, do not holiday there, ever! There is nothing ‘Spiritual’ about this barbaric land!

    • Dear Brother Kerris Milligan..

      Ignorance prevails all over the world which is currently run by few evil minded, power and money fanatics.

      Few ill minded people who does this act doesn’t make India barbaric and un-spiritual..

      Dolphin slaughter in Japan doesn’t make all Japan cruel.. Cruel filled egg and meat industry doesn’t make usa all together bad..

      Its the ignorance of suffering to fellow beings (human / non human) makes us barbaric and un-spiritual;

      With Love,
      Satish, India!
