- PETA recently exposed an illegal wildlife wet market in India where animals and their parts are sold to buyers.
- According to PETA, the said market has “rampant violations” of animal protection legislation.
- A PETA director also described such a place as a “breeding ground for deadly diseases.”
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has always led the fight against animal cruelty. This month, the non-profit organization exposed a grim wildlife market that’s been spotted in the Indian city of Dimapur in the stateof Nagaland.
The group has since shared a footage that has since gone viral online. Of course, numerous netizens expressed outrage about the sickening practice.
WARNING: Graphic images and video ahead. Viewer discretion is advised.
The video, which has been taken in secret, shows evidence of wet market vendors selling animal parts such as charred monkey hands and porcupine meat, among others.
Also captured on camera were poor dogs placed in sacks, waiting to be slaughtered.
Uploaded on YouTube last July 7, the Official PETA India channel wrote on the video description that the ”next pandemic could begin in India,” citing the fact that many believe inhumane wildlife trade was exactly how the outbreak started in China.
