Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Dimapur has resented the orders of “shoot at sight for dogs” in different parts of Nagaland and setting up of traps, hunting for animals during the national lockdown. 

In a press release, SPCA Dimapur said it was not only human beings but even animals were suffering during the pandemic as both are part of the society.

Pointing out different Sections 11, 428 and 429 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), SPCA reminded people of Nagaland that killing of an animal/pet was illegal and amounts to cruelty to animals and could amount to simple or rigorous imprisonment, with fine or both.

SPCA has appealed to the people to resist from any act that are harmful to animals, but rather be a protector to them. It then claimed that as of now, there was no report of the COVID-19 being transmitted by pets/animals to human beings.
