Camels in Bangalore [by Sharada]

Posted in Animals, Environment by Ratheesh & Sharada on March 12, 2006

I recently saw a few people making money by offering camel-rides to children in the streets near my home. It is very unfortunate that camels which are adapted to live in deserts are being dragged on the streets and made to walk on busy roads of this city. I did try calling a contact from an animal organization which I am in touch with but they say that they have been trying to stop this cruelty but there is no support from the local police or government. The police fear that this will become a communal issue since the camel owners happen to be muslims. When the NGO personnel spoke to them they reacted with a life threatning warning. The only way we can stop this is by public awareness and educate the people not to support this by not letting kids get on the camel, and by not entertaining them by giving money.
