Justice for Camels Reportedly Slaughtered

Target: YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, India

Goal: Enforce stringent legal measures to prevent camel slaughter and ensure animal protection laws are respected.

In a disturbing series of events, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and local authorities recently intervened in what was allegedly a brutal and illegal camel slaughter operation in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. In Gooty and Kurnool towns, the alleged perpetrators were reportedly ready to defy animal welfare laws egregiously. One camel, now safe, was reportedly destined for an unlawful fate but thankfully now resides in a sanctuary. This shocking incident not only highlights the alleged disregard for animal life but also challenges the legal frameworks meant to protect these innocent creatures.

Further investigation into the incidents revealed a harrowing scene, with First Information Reports (FIRs) lodged against individuals for the alleged intent to slaughter camels, an act explicitly forbidden under Indian law. The authorities’ prompt response, spurred by PETA India’s vigilance, led to the registration of FIRs under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Despite these efforts, the situation remains tense, with the safety of more camels hanging in the balance, and their fates uncertain.

The alleged planned slaughter of these camels is not only a grave concern for animal rights advocates but also a blatant violation of the Food Safety and Standards Regulations, which do not permit camels to be killed for meat. This incident calls for immediate and stringent legal action. Urge the enforcement of the strictest penalties against those involved in this alleged cruelty, reinforcing the sanctity of animal protection laws and deterring future violations.


Dear CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy,

Recent events in Andhra Pradesh have brought to light the alleged illegal and inhumane treatment of camels, an issue that demands immediate attention and action. PETA India and local enforcement agencies have reportedly intervened to prevent what was seemingly a blatant disregard for animal welfare laws. In Gooty and Kurnool, individuals were allegedly poised to slaughter camels, a direct violation of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and the Food Safety and Standards Regulations.

The seriousness of these allegations cannot be overstated. While the efforts of PETA India and local authorities have prevented immediate harm, the need for a robust, legal response to these alleged actions remains critical. It is imperative that these incidents not only be thoroughly investigated but that they also result in stringent legal repercussions for those involved.

I implore you to take decisive action in this matter. Ensure that the laws protecting these vulnerable creatures are enforced to their fullest extent and that those found in violation face the most severe penalties. Such actions will serve not only as a deterrent against future cruelty but also demonstrate a commitment to justice and the ethical treatment of all animals.

  1. India falls short of care for any animal other than the human, and they are usually not worth saving.
