Cows are being abused and exploited across India by the leather industry. During transport, their tails are broken and tobacco and chilli peppers are rubbed into their eyes. At slaughterhouses, conscious animals are left to slowly bleed to death. Some even suffer the agony of being skinned alive. Help PETA save India’s cows!
Right now, cows in India are being abused and exploited by the leather industry. They face a gruelling journey to slaughter as they are crammed into vehicles in such high numbers that their bones break. They will not be offered even a drop of water, and many will die en route.
Cows transported on foot may have theirtails broken and tobacco or hot chillies rubbed into their eyes in order to force them to keep moving. Others will collapse from hunger, exhaustion or injuries as they plod to their death.
This misery is a routine part of the Indian leather industry, which treats untold thousands of sensitive cows this way every year. Will you speak out against the horrific abuse of cows and other animals by making a donation to PETA online today?
It is difficult to understand why cows are allowed to suffer so much in India – a country where they have traditionally been revered as sacred – but the horrific cruelty described here has been documented in a groundbreaking PETA US undercover investigation and is among some of the most heartbreaking I’ve ever witnessed.
