In India, abuses against animals are quite common, especially against domestic animals. Stray dogs, cats, cattle, etc. are subjected to inhumane cruelty by human beings. Though there are various legislations like the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act,1960 and Wildlife Protection Act 1972, they are not sufficient to check animal cruelty. Leeway in this legislation and also lenient punishments degrade the purpose of these acts. Necessary changes in the laws protecting animal rights will ensure the safety of animals as well as reduce the abuses against animals. Making the laws stringent is the only way to eradicate the inefficacy of our animal protection laws.
