*TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN*

*This is an alert for every one, who love animals and worried about their
rights and welfare. The Ministry of Environment and Forest (Govt. of India)

*1. **The Animal Welfare Act, 2011 replacing toothless and

*Like wise ban on Peacock feathers trade was also proposed by the Ministry,
where as elephant has been declared as a national heritage animal of India
but there are no rules and regulations framed by the Ministry to keep
intact the heritage status of the elephant.*

*As per advice of the Ministry of Legal Affairs (Govt. of India), the above
said draft rules are dropped as stated above 2, 3 and 4. This is a shocking
news for all animal lovers, where as puppy mills owners are feel pride to
manage the Ministry of Legal Affairs but the UN affiliated OIPA in India
and PFA Haryana strongly opposing the decision.*

*Hence all interested people, organizations are requested to be united to
fight against the decision of the Ministry of Environment and Forest (Govt.
of India) and make pressure on the Animal Welfare Board of India -- AWBI to
support our movement.*
