PETA moves SC on abysmal condition of zoos

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, May 10 (UNI) People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has approached the Supreme Court against the ''substandard state of zoos across the country''.

A PETA release here said that zoo officials are not properly trained in the care of animals, veterinary doctors lack adequate wildlife training, and some zoos do not have veterinary doctors.

''In many zoos, animals are treated as objects rather than as living beings which leads to abnormal and self destructive behaviours'', the release said.

On a petition filed by the PETA during October 2004 before the Bombay High Court citing the failure of authorities to provide even the most basic care for animals at the Mumbai Zoo, the High Court had ordered major improvements.
