Law For Other Spices - By Maneka Gandhi

Q. What are 'Performing Animals'?

A . Under Section 2 (b) of the Performing Animals Rules, 1973, 'Performing Animal' means any animal which is used for the purpose of any entertainment to which the public is admitted through the sale of tickets. Section 2(h) of the Performing Animals (Registration) Rules, 2001 specifies that this includes animals used in films and for equine events.

Q. Is it an offence to train or exhibit an animal for police purposes?

A . No. Section 27 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 acts as an exemption clause, permitting the training of animals for bonafide military or police purposes. However, Section 11 of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 applies to these animals too. It has to be kept in mind that no animal can be treated cruelly or in any way that harms them.
