PETA India Demonstration, Sans Cops

Written by PETA | August 21, 2009

While some PETA India members in Calcutta faced cop trouble at a demonstration outside the Calcutta Zoo earlier this week, others hit the streets in Delhi to help residents brush up on their ABCs: animal birth control.

Delhi, Bangalore, and other parts of the country are facing a critical animal overpopulation crisis that has left dogs and cats living in misery on the streets. Did you know that one female dog and all her puppies can produce a whopping 67,000 dogs in six years if none of them are spayed or neutered?

The solution to animal overpopulation in India—and the rest of the world—is simple: Always spay or neuter your companion animals.

    Edward why don’t you be a good boy and do something noble and attempt to enter your local police force. How good are you with a baton and a gun and handcuffs?

  • amrit says:

    Please know that they ALSO always issue in the local language and ALSO ALWAYS in Hindi! You will see lots of reproductions in the papers of this photo but captioned in every local language imaginable. Don’t worry!

    No Adam I don’t get it. That is because you are sadly wrong. Hindi is spoken by over 420 million accounted people. Compare 420 million Hindi speakers to 90 million English speakers. less than 200000 said English was their first language. Last time I checked 420 million is larger than 90 million. Those 420 million Hindi speakers are also widespread in over half of India. A large volume Hindi over a large area is good but a small volume English over a large area is ineffective. But how many of those 90 million English speakers know more than basic sentences? Would they be able to understand sentences like “It’s time to sterilise all dogs!” like on the sign in the picture? I know that I did not learn sentences like that when I took French classes. I’m pretty sure Rosetta Stone doesn’t teach that either. If they can’t find Hindi volunteers PETA should at least have signs with writing in multiple languages for Hindi and other Indian languages. It just makes sense. If PETA protested in Russia what would make more sense protesting in English or protesting in Russian?

    India has a billion people and English are the and 16 other languages are recognized in regional areas Hindi is the national language but not spoken throughout India English is more fluent through out India does that make sense Edward

    street or road side animal cowdog etc. are facing the curelaty . how can i work to remove this!

  • emma says:

    I think the reason people dont spay their animals is because they have to pay for it i have 2 female and 1 male cat all spayed but if it wasnt for the vouchers the rspca are issuing then i wouldnt av been able to afford it just yetit isnt free but its at a lower cost maybe if a lot more people got help towards the cost then maybe people would do it more i know its a poor excuse but with the recession at the moment it could really help.

  • Veronica says:

    Though I appreciate and understand PETA’s efforts in this project I truly hope that they will soon focus more on promoting and pursuing an end to breedingcommercial and otherwise rather than spayingneutering and administering hormonal birth control as the most effective way to control animal overpopulation.

  • Edward says:

    Why are they protesting in English even though most Indians speak Hindi? There are only 90 million english speakers out of a whopping 893 million residents. It would make more sense to get Hindispeaking residents to form campaigns.
