WHat a way to treat your National Bird! Have you no laws, or power to prevent this embarrasment. What a shame. So sorry that this is such a blemish on India. Please try and fix this problem as cruelty is never the answer.

We hope as human beings ... we are able to recognize brutality by opening our thoughts to how it would be if this cruelty were inflicted upon ourselves ... isn't it easy to see? If it isn't ... then those who see it this way are much further below the structure of human and animal intelligence.

I pray that they ban the sale of the feathers as they end up as decors in the house or clothes. It would be tragic to see a male peacock without its magnificent feathers. It may look as a dressed chicken: naked.

Naresh! Your concern has great merit.During our good childhood days,we used to see large number of peacocks in the fields, on the trees and especially on the village ponds.The habitat of peacocks has been severely eroded and its breeding ground,which was constituted by thick bushes,has almost been finished.The excessive use of pesticides has added to the large scale death of adults along with stray killings.the bird is now struggling for its survival.This is the right time that this should be vigourously conserved and protected.Your petition is very timely.

NOTED. Amen, Marge M. - these feathers are meant to glorify the bird who wears them - not be stolen by violence to gratify the ego of a brainwashed human eejit.

How sad! Atrocities will always continue in many forms as long as people are willing to buy the object.
