Enforce the Ban on Using Bullocks to Pull Oil Carts

Hundreds of bullocks are currently used to transport kerosene from oil ports in Sewri, Wadala and Mulund to different rationing stations in the city. Most of the animals are underfed and undernourished, and many suffer from untreated illnesses or injuries. They are forced to work to exhaustion, pulling heavy loads through all weather extremes. Motorists who encounter bullocks in the street are put at risk of dangerous traffic accidents.
On 30 September 2008, the Ministry of Food, Civil Supply and Consumer Protection made the decision to end the use of bullocks to transport kerosene in Mumbai by 31 March 2009. It was subsequently decided that bullock cart owners would be given three-wheel auto rickshaws for transporting kerosene. However, the ban has not yet been enforced, and hundreds of bulls are still suffering. In a goodwill effort to jump-start the programme, PETA India founder Ingrid E Newkirk recently travelled to India from the US to donate an auto rickshaw to one owner of a bullock-drawn cart in exchange for allowing his beleaguered bull to be sent to a sanctuary. Let's speak up for bulls and demand the immediate implementation of the ban.

You Can Help

Please ask the Ministry of Food, Civil Supply and Consumer Protection to implement the ban on the use of bullocks for transporting kerosene immediately.

Please Ban the Use of Bullocks for Transporting Kerosene

I was shocked to learn that two years after your Ministry's decision to ban the use of bullocks for transporting kerosene in Mumbai, bullocks are still widely used. Because the Ministry has not enforced this ban, hundreds of bulls are being worked to exhaustion pulling heavy loads through all weather extremes.

Not only is the use of bullocks cruel, it also puts the safety of the public at risk. Your Ministry also planned to provide cart owners with three-wheel auto rickshaws so the bullocks can be retired. PETA India recently donated an auto rickshaw to one bullock cart owner in a good-faith gesture to get the programme underway. I am asking you now to take immediate steps to impose the ban and provide an alternative method of transport for cart owners.

ANIMAL RAHAT = Improving the lives of working animals in India

June 20, 2011

Changing minds, changing practises

One of the more common sights in India is that of a bullock trudging along in the heat, straining under a heavy yoke to pull an overloaded, poorly balanced cart. These gentle animals often suffer from dehydration, untreated sores, muscle strain, depression and even beatings. Animal Rahat (relief) is a non-profit organisation which was created to make a difference in the lives of working bullocks, donkeys, ponies and horses.

We have set up Animal Rahat in the sugar-mill district of Sangli and in the neighbouring town of Solapur, where our staff provides free aid to bullocks who work in sugar mills in Maharashtra as well as to donkeys used in the brick kilns and horses who pull carts. Animal Rahat's aim is to alleviate the suffering of these animals by giving rest to the lame and offering relief to the sick and injured. This also helps the animals' owners, who are often too poor to afford the sustenance necessary to maintain animals' health and strength, pay for veterinary care in times of illness and injury or give their animals time for rest and recuperation.

Teraching proper care and nutrition

In just one year, the Animal Rahat camp, which was started in the Sangli market yard with the blessing of a local government official, spread to 25 stopping points covering an area of 60 square kilometres (which includes Miraj, Madhavnagar, Kupwad, and Sangli) where more than 1,500 working animals gather. In and around Miraj and Sangli, the group has installed concrete water tanks to provide water to thirsty, often overheated working animals. Other activities include educating cattle owners about the basic needs of their animals, including proper food, clean and sufficient water, shade, and adequate rest periods, as well as discussions of health management. The group has conducted vaccination camps for foot-and-mouth disease with, to date, more than 350 animals inoculated against this dreaded ailment. Animal Rahat was also able to vaccinate 100 horses against tetanus. The organization also provides stress-reducing kits of vitamins and minerals for cart drivers to administer to their tired animals after long stretches on the road.

Animal Rahat’s approach is to spread awareness of basic animal welfare among the locals, teaching them the benefits of adopting basic, practical measures, the importance of providing their animals with a nutritious diet and the benefits – to themselves as well as the animals – of reducing and balancing their animals’ loads. Most of the first-aid treatment given to bullocks by Animal Rahat is necessitated by poor nutrition, dehydration caused by under-watering, ill-fitting yokes that leave wounds and lead to cancer and infection, and back, hump, and neck stress resulting from incorrect loading of the bullock carts, overwork, and improper driving of the carts. Many bullocks are depressed, suffering from poor appetite, diarrhea, and lethargy.

Animal Rahat’s guidance and support of the owners of these animals has already reduced practices such as leaving the bullocks out in extreme heat or unprotected through wet rainy seasons. As a result, there are lower incidences of heat stress, cough, and pneumonia in the animals. Animal Rahat has also designed a portable shade screen that can be attached to individual carts and used by owners as a shelter against the heat or do double duty as a bullock blanket during the cold winters.

Retirements subsidies

One of Rahat’s other achievements is the recent development of a retirement plan — asking owners who have bullocks past their working age not to send them to the butcher’s knife but instead to allow them to retire and live out their lives with their human families with a small subsidy. Bullocks like Raja and Mahadev are now leading a peaceful retired life ever since their owners, Tatya Jadhav and Yellappa Chikodikar, decided that they could not bear to see their bulls end up as jackets or shoes. The retired bullocks serve as models for respectful relations between humans and animals, just as the overloaded bullock carts represent the cruel practices that Animal Rahat hopes to make a thing of the past.
The success of Animal Rahat in Sangli prompted us to expand to the nearby sugar district of Sholapur. In just the first month of our operations there, the number of cases reached 40 a day.
Animal Rahat makes a big difference in the lives of working animals in India.
These gentle animals endure heat, travelling without rest and overloaded and poorly balanced carts.
They suffer from dehydration, untreated sores, muscle strain, depression and beatings.
The Animal Rahat team offers solutions to help these animals.
We offer a "stress kit", which contains supplements and multivitamins to help animals handle exhausting journeys.
Animal Rahat designed simple, portable shade screens for the individual carts.
Animal Rahat installed water tanks around Miraj and Sangli to provide water for overheated working animals.
Animal Rahat provides veterinary care and educates owners about better ways to treat their animals.
Animals who are sick, injured or simply too old to work go into an Animal Rahat-developed retirement plan.
With the guidance and support of Animal Rahat, owners of working animals have begun to move away from practices that hurt animals.

Animal Rahat Update June 2011

Thanks to the generosity of Animal Rahat donors, the team achieved a legal milestone, saved lives and provided much-needed services to more than 1,400 animals this month!
Two more bullocks are newly retired and will never again have to bear the burden of the yoke and will not be sent to slaughter. Udabattya worked for his owner, Mr Jadhav, for 22 years. This month, Mr Jadhav and another bullock owner, Mr Tawase, were able to retire their bullocks with the help of Animal Rahat, which will assist with the cost of the bullocks' feed and care. Under the team's guidance, both owners have built sheds so that the animals can rest comfortably out of the harsh sun, and they have released the bullocks from their painful nose ropes! Hurray!

Our vets treat a huge range of patients, from bullocks and donkeys to elephants and camels to rabbits and owls. But this month brought a very special client: a pangolin! Have you ever seen one of these extraordinary animals? As you can see from the photo, they resemble anteaters (they do indeed eat ants), but they are covered in keratin scales – the only mammal in the world with this feature. This pangolin was trapped in a sewage pipe and was spotted by a compassionate passer-by who called Animal Rahat. The team rescued Mr/Ms Pangolin, who, luckily, was not injured, and with the help of forest officials, we released the animal into a national park the following day.

Were it not for Rahat's presence, many animals would endure long, excruciatingly painful deaths from diseases or horribly infected injuries. Instead, they are given a peaceful release. Some of this month's cases include a dog with testicular cancer, a donkey with a maggot-infested hoof avulsion that made walking almost impossible, a horse with a severely infected broken bone in his leg and a bullock with a broken tibia.

The last instance was discovered during a home visit that, despite the sad circumstances, ended with a hopeful outcome: the owner told our vets that he no longer wished to cause animals to suffer and would therefore purchase a car instead of buying another bullock!
Animal Rahat is also helping other veterinarians. This month, through Maharashtra Agricultural University, a group of veterinary professors and students learned the latest techniques in chemical restraint from one of Animal Rahat's able vets. Dr Amol conducted a demonstration on how to anaesthetise bullocks so that they can remain standing while undergoing surgery in the field. Everyone was enthusiastic about learning this method, which will allow them to provide animals with needed surgical procedures more frequently, safely and efficiently.

As a great testament to how well Animal Rahat is regarded, local police in Sangli allowed the team to paint educational murals on the walls of police headquarters. Not only is this a great way to inform villagers about the harm caused by using whips and yoking horses and bullocks together, it is also a way to get the police more invested in enforcing the rules against these practises.

Another exciting piece of news: just last week, we made landmark progress for bullocks who haul sugarcane. Working with Animal Rahat, PETA India succeeded in convincing the Judicial Magistrate Court of Indapur to issue a notice against sugarcane factory Shri Chhatrapati Sahakari Sakhar Karkhana Ltd for loading the carts far in excess of the legal limit. The law that the company violated – the Prevention of Cruelty to Draught and Pack Animals – has been ignored for decades, so this is a remarkable victory. We hope to use this ruling to push sugarcane-mill owners and managers to tow the line and stop this hideous form of abuse. Wish us luck!

Lastly, there has also been a happy ending for an elephant. You may recall that several months ago, Animal Rahat helped free Mariappan, an elephant who had been kept chained by all four legs inside a dark shed at a temple for seven years. Since that time, he has been temporarily housed at a zoo, but this month, Mariappan was returned to his birthplace at Anamalai Tiger Reserve (ATR), where he was reunited with his mother! ATR will now be his permanent home, where he can bathe in streams, socialise with other elephants and experience the simple joy of walking – all things that he had been deprived of for years.

All this terrific progress is possible only because of the generosity of Animal Rahat donors. If you would like to be part of this vital work, please join us.
