Tougher laws needed to pro­tect wild an­i­mals

Mail Today - - INTERACTIVE -

THE killing of ti­gress Avni, un­der or­ders from the state for­est de­part­ment, has not only drawn a wide­spread out­rage across the coun­try but also com­pelled the peo­ple on the road to protest and to raise their voices against this bru­tal killing.

Union min­is­ter of women and child de­vel­op­ment Maneka Gandhi said on Twit­ter that “I am deeply sad­dened by the way ti­gress Avni, has been bru­tally mur­dered and it is noth­ing but a straight case of crime.” Like wise, hun­dreds of cit­i­zens came out to march in protest against Avni’s killing.

As a so­ci­ety we should speak out against the killing of ani- mals and pun­ish those who hunt them. The protest is a glad sense of the kind­ness and love for the an­i­mals and liv­ing cre­ations. This kind­ness should be born in our mind and must re­main for­ever for ev­ery liv­ing cre­ations.
