There really does need to be a way of blacklisting bad owners who cause harm to animals - whether by neglect or active abuse

Many people are selling peacock feathers to Indian and foreign tourists in Colaba, Mumbai.They had showed me letter of Rahul Bojja , PRIVATE SECRETARY TO MINISTER OF STATE (INDEPENDENT CHARGE ENVIRONMENT & FORESTS ,GOVERNMENT OF INDIA ) ,Dated 31st December 2010 and Visiting card of Mohd Ajmal Khan (Peacock feather Merchant)

Rahul Bojja letter----

This is to state that, presently no ban or restriction is place upon sale of peacock feathers.Section 43(3) (a) of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 declares transfer of trail feathers of peacock as an exception to the law regulatiing transfer of animals.
This is to state that, Section 44 of the abovementioned Act further exempts dealers in trade of trail feathers of peacocks from all licensisng requirements.

However peacocks are listed at entry no11 of part iii of Sechdule I of the said act, poaching of peacock is therefore prohibited under Section 9 and is punishable under Section 51 of the Act.
The Ministry of Environment and forests at present at present has no intention to intention to alter or amend the legal provisionsrelevant to sale peacockfeathers.

Peacocks are poached for several reasons including its meat and feathers. “There is a belief that keeping peacock feathers in home bring good luck,” an official said. In many places the national bird is killed for meat considered to have medicinal values especially with relation to arthritis.
