Man booked under animal cruelty for dragging injured pony on road

Animal abuse is against the law and causing pain to the animals is an inhumane act. Using animals for the purpose of entertainment, food or research is clearly brutal.

One such cruel act was witnessed yesterday near Ransoo Tehsil of Reasi district where a middle-aged man namely namely Zalim Singh S/o Shankar Singh was transporting his pony from Ransoo to Shiv Khori while carrying the pilgrim on its back.


The horse was badly injured at the knees but the owner was still dragging the horse mercilessly. Later when the people noticed the incident, the severity of the wounds forced them to immediately inform the nearby police station.



Following which the owner of the horse was booked under section 3/6 P.C.A. Act and today he was produced before Hon’ble CJM Court Reasi.

We must understand that if we have to use these animals for making a living, at least they should be treated well and must be provided with proper food, water and shelter.
