Four Baby monkies rescued from Marina Beach

On June 16th late evening by 8 PM, People For Cattle in India (PFCI) rescued 4 Baby Monkeys near the Marina beach from a group of People. A complaint about the same was given by Mr Ashwath, a Member of PFCI. A CSR was registered @ the D5 Marina Police Station.

The Monkeys were Harassed, Cruelly treated & Abused by being tied with a metal rope & were made to beg by these People. All the Monkeys looked Famished, Starved Dehydrated & Weak. The people who had this Monkeys as usal fled the place when Police arrived.

These activities of the People who keep Monkeys as performing Animals for the purpose of begging are violating various Laws like,
1. Wildlife Protection Act,
2. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,
3. Performing Animals Acts, Rules & Registrations.Indian Penal Code 428 & 429  Etc

At the Police station, the Monkeys were offered Banana, Gauva & Water by PFCI members. The starved Monkeys readily accepted the food. All the Monkeys were tamed & are very friendly with humans. The Rescued Monkeys are given to the Wildlife dept, the Monkeys will treated by the Wildlife & once they are physically fit, they will be Sterilized &will be rehabilitated. This process is not often easy & involves various unforeseen issues. But again this is the only solution available out of not many options.

The sad issue here is the fact that the Monkeys are held in such pathetic conditions in locations like Marina, which are just miles away from the Wildlife department. Wildlife dept needs to get moving & stop this menace. Poor Monkeys are going through immense stress. This issue has be curtailed once for all as this activity of abusing Monkeys doesn’t seem to come down & the frequency at which so many Monkeys are being caught is alarming. Wildlife Dept must act & take steps to save such Monkeys for good & cannot turn a blind eye as always.

Baby Monkeys are often abducted from their Mother when they are very young by these people who use Monkeys for either for performing Tricks as Shows or for Begging. The process of catching the Baby Monkey from the Mother is a very cruel act which often ends in severe injuries to the Mother. The poor helpless Mothers often Die as they are either beaten or poisoned in an attempt to abduct their young ones by the people who later

sell the Baby Monkey for 100s of Rupees to the ones who make them perform or beg on the roadside.

Foster parents needed urgently for a beautiful female Rottweiler

Chennai: This is an urgent adoption appeal. Also, we request people to think thoroughly before adopting pets. If they are not capable of handling pets and they think that they won’t be able to take care of the pet any more, at least have the courtesy to contact animal welfare organisation such as People for Cattle in India or any other before abandoning pets. It’s a shameful act to abandon pets on the streets. This is what happened to Rotty.

Mrs. Jaya informed the PFCI team that someone came in a car, dumped this beautiful female rottweiler on the street and fled.  Our team rushed to the spot and rescued her. She, named as Rotty for now, has undergone a health check and is boarded . Rotty is approximately 8-10 months old, active and healthy. She appears to be human friendly and understands basic commands.

How about adopting this gorgeous little one and adding some sunshine to your lives?

This is how horses we ride on for joy have to suffer

Chennai: On a scorching Saturday afternoon around 3 pm, PFCI team members witnessed a horse on the Besant Nagar beach being made to give joy rides to the visiting public on the seashore. The horse was beaten, pulled and kicked by the horse handlers. The horse was obviously dehydrated and tired because of exertion. The burning Sun only added to the poor horse’s agony. The horse looked weak, famished and dehydrated. The horses were handled by boys less than 18 years old and it was quite evident that the handlers were inexperienced.

The horse’s hind legs were swollen and needed immediate medical attention. PFCI members rushed to the police station and lodged a complaint against the horse owners and handlers. The complaint was based on various violations like,

1. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,
2. Performing Animals Acts, Rules and Registrations,
3. Indian Penal Code sections 428 and 429

The police registered the complaint and sent a squad to bring the horse that was abused to the police station. We organized an ambulance to send the horse to the Blue Cross of India shelter at Guindy.

The horse was in very bad health condition. It’s such a pity that the inexperienced horse owners and handlers abuse the horses. A single horse costs somewhere between Rs 50,000 and 70,000. The horses are to be fed quality food and feed per day per horse cost nothing less that Rs 100. Periodical medical help and monthly vaccination is a must which the horse owners seldom monitor.

The Horses on the beach are seldom taken good care. PFCI has rescued Horses from Cruel treatment in the past on 4 occasions,

1. 4th March, 2014 a Pony was rescued and case filed at Nungambakkam Police station
2. 28th November, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Bezant Nagar Police station
3. 11th December, 2014 a Horse was rescued and case filed at Egmore Police station.

4. 14th Feburary, 2014 2 Horses were rescued and case filed at Marina Police station.

Kodungaiyur to get 20 KLD of effluence from the slaughter house everyday

Chennai: Corporation of Chennai had earlier requested for concurrence of Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWS & SB) for the treatment of Trade Effluent released from Pulianthope Slaughter House at 110 MLD STP at Kodungaiyur and permission for transportation of 20 KLD per day trade Effluent generated from the Slaughter House through tanker lorries to the STP at Kodungaiyur for treatment and disposal.

The CMWS&SB has accepted the same and has given the concurrence therein on 4.5.2015 and from 5.5.2015 no Trade Effluent from Pulianthope Slaughter House would be discharged outside the premises and will be sent to the Kodungaiyur.

The Effluence from Slaughter House is marked as Red category (Highly Polluting) & Pulianthope Slaughter House has not been treating the Effluence until recently. The Effluence was being let into open connecting the Canals.

The above were submitted by The Counsel for Corporation of Chennai during the NGT hearing on Unlicensed Slaughter House case filed byPeople For Cattle in India, (PFCI)

To add to existing Polluting & Environmental vows, Kodungaiyur will be affected much more when such dangerous Effluence from Puliyanthope Slaughter House are be treated & disposed.

Can this be stopped?

Rescued this little one who was locked inside a house for the past few days without food and water

On May 8th, we received a call seeking help in rescuing a dog named Akash who was locked inside a house by his owner in Thiruvotriyur near Chennai for the past few days. Animal lover, Priya Varshini, has been feeding Akash till then through the window. The owners went on a vacation and they left him behind to fend for himself. Akash was tied with a metal chain, inside the locked house.

Team PFCI rushed to the nearby police station and lodged a complaint. The police took three hours to decide on the matter and finally gave the go ahead to break the lock and release Akash. PFCI received the CSR copy from the police and with their help, rescued Akash.

Akash was checked by the vet and given enough food and water. Akash is now at foster care and will be up for adoption. The case registered with the police will be investigated once the owner returns.

We are not able to understand such recklessness on the part of the owners. Why do they even keep pets if they can’t look after them? They would certainly not have left their own child like they did to Akash. Why such a treatment is meted out to the poor animals with no fault of theirs? So many unanswered questions and like every time it’s the animals that suffer. When will this attitude change?

Foster parents needed: Rescued two Labradors from West Mambalam that were ill-treated by the owners

Chennai:

Male dog with swollen legs and skin infection

Male dog, Rocky, with swollen legs and skin infection

We need foster pet parents for two Labradors who were ill-treated by the owners in West Mambalam. The dogs were in such a poor condition that they had developed skin and fungal infections. They also had swollen legs, paws and face. We lodged a complaint to the Ashok Nagar Police. The owners had come to the station and agreed to hand over both the dogs to us for medical treatment and upkeep. The owners agreed to fund the treatment of the dogs. They wanted to take the dogs to Vepery but we refused as the dogs were in urgent need of medical attention. And the owners were insisting to treat them in Vepery making them walk everyday which would have caused the dogs a lot of pain and stress.

The dogs were duly treated and are boarded at a private vet. We might need a foster or an adopter soon. The owner will not spend much. The male, Rambo,  is not in good shape. His blood samples have been sent for testing. He has swelling on his face, paws and shoulders. He eats well and was given a shower and will need boarding for a while now till he recovers.

The female, Rocky, is healthy and doesn’t have any of the issues that Rambo has. She has been vaccinated, dewormed and showered. Now, both the fellows need to be given for fostering or adoption after 10 days or so. They are more than 10 years old and need special care. They will have to go together. They will not go back to the owner but we need to get them a home ASAP. The owner will be contributing for the treatment.

Please contact below for further details.

4 ill-treated Donkeys, now rescued

image

Two mother donkeys and two calves (1 male & 1 female) were abused and ill-treated by a person in Mylapore. PFCI received a complaint from Ms Sneha about the same.

On 28th Feb by 4 PM,PFCI investigated and found out that the four donkeys were never given proper care by the owner. The donkeys were made to stray during the day and later in the evening were tied in small dirty ropes on the roadside. They were not even properly fed let alone providing shelter. The calves were very weak and malnurished.

PFCI members rushed to the Mylapore Police  Station and lodged a complaint. After 4 hours, the SI agreed to file the complaint, gave a CSR & sent police officers to rescue the donkeys. By 8 pm after much difficulty, the members of PFCI carried the donkeys on a vehicle. By 10 pm, the donkeys were taken to Dr Shiranee’s PFA at Redhills, where they are now being fed and given proper shelter.

The owner of the donkeys is out of station and the neighbours told that he sells their milk at Rs 400 for few millilitres. Also there were rumors that he sells their blood to people saying that the blood has medicinal value. The police assured that they will do a thorough enquiry once the owner of the donkeys returns.
