MUMBAI: PETA yet again came to the rescue of another two horses that were used in a fuel hike protest at Bandra. The Kherwadi police station in Bandra (east) seized two young horses which were used in a political rally organised by the Congress party on Thursday, to protest against the increasing fuel prices. PETA assisted the police to file a FIR against the horses’ custodians under Sections 3 and 11 of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, for treating the weak and exhausted animals cruelly. PETA activists informed that the people at the political rally were turn by turn sitting on the exhausted horses, forcing them to walk under the scorching sun for hours without food, water and shade.
