India’s Animal Rights are well established and progressive. The PETA or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organizes the movement well and demands respect. They make sure that people who break the laws relating to animal rights meet justice. For example, 4 medical students in India were caught torturing and killing a monkey and the PETA coordinated with the authorities and made sure the students were expelled, arrested and even brought in for psychiatric evaluation. Although the animal rights movement in India is stronger than that of America, there is still cruelty. The circus industry in India still uses captive animals and do not treat them well. Recently 17 animals were rescued from a circus in India and brought to sanctuaries. In India they celebrate World Animal Day, this is not well known at all in America, This really sums up the difference between the animal rights movement in America vs. India.
