Horses treated at the Kartiki fair
At a festival called the Kartiki fair horses were forced to dance while wearing spiked bits, which tore at their mouths. Animal Rahat treated horses there who suffered from eye infections and other ailments, distributed dozens of free face harnesses for bullocks to replace the use of painful nose ropes, and erected a poster gallery with photographs showing cruel treatment of horses and bullocks. This exhibit attracted hundreds of visitors, and Animal Rahat was able to tell them about the harm caused by whips, yoke spikes, overloaded carts, dehydration, malnutrition, and other abuse. We also stopped the sale of spiked bits at the fair.
