Q. Does the Police have the power to inspect any premises where Performing Animals are being trained or exhibited?

A. Yes. If it comes to the knowledge of the police officer that the training or exhibition of any Performing Animal has been accompanied by unnecessary pain or suffering, section 25 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 provides that any police officer not below the rank of sub-inspector may enter at all reasonable times and inspect any premises in which any Performing Animals are being trained or exhibited or kept for training or exhibition and ask for the certificate of registration from the trainer or exhibitor. Section 26 states that anyone who -
