Q6 What are the powers that a police man can exercise when he see the cruelty
being done on animals?
A) Section 34 of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 provides the general
power of seizure for examination to the police officer above the rank of constable. If the
police officer comes to know about an offence against commission of any offence under
PCA Act has been committed or is been committed on any animal, he can seize the
animal and produce the same for examination by the nearest magistrate or by the
Veterinary Officer. Whether it is the case of overloading of animals or beating of animal
or any offences under this PCA Act, the police have the power to seize the animals and
send them to infirmaries for the treatment and care of animals. This is provided under
Section 35 of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. Section 35 states that the
animals are to be detained and have to be produced before the magistrate. Animals are to
be treated and cared for in an infirmary, until they are fit for discharge. The animal sent
for care and treatment to an infirmary cannot be released from such places unless the
veterinary officer issues the certificate of its fitness for discharge. The cost of
transporting the animal to an infirmary and its maintenance and treatment in an infirmary,
has to be paid by the owner of the animal.
Q 18) Are animal fairs where animals are traded, legal?
A) When the sale takes place this fair is normally meant for farmers. However, in recent
years they have become exclusively devoted for providing animals to butchers. This is
illegal. In order to prevent this from happening local administration should make sure that
no trucks are allowed near the fair and that no cattle is put inside trucks and no buyer can
buy more than two animals. The Municipality has a special role to play in animal
protection. The Local authority of the place where the ‘Haat’ or fair is held should check
that there is the proper maintenance of animals by their owners. The municipality must
allocate sufficient funds for the proper cleaning, feeding, housing and treatment of these
animals. The money earned from their auction and release, must be spent on the care of
these animals. Wherever possible, it should involve local NGOs/AWO in the running of
these Pounds. When cattle are auctioned, the buyer must specify for what purpose he is
buying the animal and that should be verified to avert cow slaughter, which is a criminal
