Dear Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra, every living creature has a right to live on this earth and every creature has a right to fair and equitable justice.
We understand the cause of the anger of the people of Satara and sympathize with the family, but this does not mean that they take the law in their own hands and kill defenseless and mute animals! Men are raping children less than even 2 years of age- should women vent their anger on all males they see?
An animal reacts with his instinct, but humans are blessed with brains to think before they act. Unfortunately, they have behaved no better than the dogs who attacked the child!
There are laws that protect the Stray animals- dogs and cats in India. After 1992, it became illegal for municipalities to kill stray dogs. The High Courts of Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Mumbai and several other states have specifically forbidden the killing of stray dogs and have directed the municipality to introduce a sensible sterilisation programme instead. The Animal Welfare Board of India has established a code of conduct for municipalities. Failure to follow the code can invite contempt of court proceedings. Sections 428 and 429 of the Indian Penal Code make it illegal to maim or cause injury to any animal. And here not just the people but also the Satara Municipality has to share this blame in this mass murder!! (The Satara Case: http://www.punemirror.in/article/2/2012080620120806093811365898c3282/Going-to-the-dogs.html)
We request you, Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra, to please see that the laws are upheld. In our country that takes pride in its culture and tradition, be it a cow or an dog- every animal has a right to be live and gets its due justice.
Please do so before it is too late! In sympathy with the lives of those who were innocently taken away!

Please sign this petition so that every living creature can gets its fair share of justice. Should we go and kill all men who violate young children? Animals react with their instinct. Humans have been given brains to think and then act with fairness. If you think the reaction of the people of Satara venting their anger by killing hundred's of dogs is not justified and humans should try and find better solutions to the problem of strays, then I request you humbly to please sign this petition.
