Law For Other Spices - By Maneka Gandhi

Q. Are animal fairs where animals are traded, legal?

A. Fairs where animals are sold are normally meant for farmers. However, in recent years they are being misused to supply animals to butchers. This is illegal and in order to prevent it the local administration can take various measures. Trucks should be prohibited near the fair, and no cattle should be allowed to be loaded into trucks. Buyers should be restricted to only two animals each. When cattle are auctioned, the buyer must specify for what purpose he is buying the animal and this must be verified to avert cowslaugther which is a criminal offence. The Municipality has a special role to play in animal protection. It must allocate sufficient funds for the proper cleaning, feeding, housing and treatment of the animals. A portion of money earned from their auction and release, must be spent on the care of these animals. The local authority of the place where the 'Haat' or fair is held should check that there is proper maintenance of animals by their owners. Wherever possible, it should involve local NGOs in the running of these fairs. The Municipality can also designate local shelters as Infirmaries for the care and treatment of animals confiscated at these fairs from offenders violating the animal protection laws. No wild animals or birds or any other wild species can be sold at or brought to such fairs.
