The State of Maharashtra during bakri id of 2014 had decided to permit 12000 bulls to be permitted to the slaughtered for Bakri ID despite the provisions of Maharashtra Animal Preservation Act 1976, Prevention of Cruelty of Animals Act and Environment Protection Act. We joined hands with like minded organizations and got the notification stayed by approaching the Hon’ble Governor. (As the assembly was dissolved then). We also parallelly approached the Hon’ble High Court for relief. The Hon’ble Governor and the High Court, at almost same time stayed the notification. He then got confiscated the bulls being illegally transported from Mumbai to smaller cities and rehabilitated a few in his animal shelter and the rest in other rescue centers.
