Indian states are full of culture, but sometimes, these states break laws under the nose of the government. Despite dog killing & eating being illegal in India, this horrendous malpractice is still being carried out in parts of Nagaland under the guise of culture.
Now, you may be wondering it’s the state’s problem? Not really! Many of these dogs come from as far away as West Bengal and Assam. Trucks full of dogs are taken to Nagaland at night, crossing the border illegally. The dogs’ mouths are tied up with rope so that they cannot bark. Many even die of suffocation on the way.

How can you help?
You can write a mail to the Chief Secretary of Nagaland - Mr Temjan Toy and ask for the police to stop the dog bazars and the dog restaurants in Nagaland. His email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
People for Animals, spearheaded by Maneka Gandhi started a movement to stop this practice right away. All you need to do is write an email, send it across & share this with your friends and families as well.
They’ve already reached their goal of 20,000 mails out of 50,000 mails. Please spare 2 minutes and do this today so we all can collectively reach the goal and this practice can be stopped. Let’s bring the change we hope to see in the world!
