I signed CAPTIVE JUMBO's ARE TORTURED on Apr 26, 2008.
and i would also add in the body of the lettre
india was the first country to grant legal protection to animals hundreds of years ago. Asoka was the first ruler to do so. India by its very claim to ahimsa do no harm is violating there principle. the treatment of cows is frankly friends are real spiritual crime

In the same way, Council has helped the local administration in Coimbatore in improving and creating certain physical infrastructure in Pollachi animal market by constructing ramps, water tanks, sick base etc. CLE also assisted the Coimbatore Corporation to construct a new abattoir, using funds from some of the overseas Buyers, CLE and from Department of Commerce. A training programme was organized wherein more than 16 people were trained by the experts on how to handle the animals in slaughterhouses.
While these are all only the initial activities taken by the Council, the Council also stands committed to extend these activities throughout the country and to prevail upon the State and Central Governments to bring change in the procedures so that the intended objective of treating the animals in humane is achieved.
With warm regards,
Dr. K. Elangovan

This is the letter I received, as you have also.

Dear Ms. Cristina Seica
I am in receipt of your e-mail. I share your concern and there are no two opinions about the need for humane treatment of animals.
I wish to bring to your kind notice that leather industry in India sources hides and skins at some designated markets. These markets collect hides & skins from various slaughter houses and supply to tanneries. Neither the member of the Council nor the Council is directly involved in transportation or slaughtering of animals. You would agree that in India as is elsewhere, animals are slaughtered mainly for the meat. Thus there are other stakeholders involved in the process of slaughtering of animals, Department of Agriculture (farming), Dept. of Animal Husbandry (dairy), Department of Transportation (transportation), Local Self-Governments like Municipalities and Corporations (abattoirs) and Meat industry for meat. Thus hides & skins are the end product in the process. It is clear that leather industry does not have any control whatsoever on these Government organizations and Departments which are involved in these activities.
Nevertheless, as I stated earlier, sharing your concern, Council as taken up many initiatives unilaterally and independently to redress some of the issues. By engaging Mrs Mariam Parker, a well known animal welfare expert from UK, Council has organized training courses on best animal handling practices in some parts of Tamil Nadu in India. Council could also with her help bring out a manual on Best Handling Practices. In order to make these practices as national standards, this manual is sent to Bureau of Indian Standards.
Don´t know what happened! I have sent this message some time ago and don´t remembered if it came back. But at least the first would have reached the destiny as they were two recipients. Sorry!
I could not send the first petition. This is what I got back:
The following message to <email@example.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'5.7.1 Unknown or illegal alias: firstname.lastname@example.org'
They may have gotten too many emails? And shut it down? Any idea?
Sent both of course..
Big Gorilly Hugs
Double standard for animals in India, foreign species are in danger. In J&K Indian animal related laws are not effective due to special provisions under article 370. PFA HARYANA raised these points under RTI Act, 2005 before Hon'ble Speaker Lok Sabha on dated 19-10-2005 but till date the said points are un-attended. International Organization for Animal Protection-OIPA INDIA now demands protection cover for foreign species under the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 & implementation of Indian animal related laws in J&K.
Stop the illegal treatment of Indian cows.
Animals used by the leather industry are transported to states where they can legally be killed. Forced to walk through the heat and dust for days without food or water, many of the animals collapse. Handlers pull the cattle by ropes through their noses and twist their necks, horns and tails or rub chilli peppers in their eyes in order to keep them moving.
And the petition:
