An animal crossing at an undisclosed location in India is the latest example of how animals are being used to move around and interact with people.
The dogs are being driven from the animal-crossing area of Chitradurga, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh state, to a nearby area of Dandakaranya, according to police reports.
The police said in an official statement that they were investigating whether the animals were being used for medical treatment.
Animal crossingThe Indian government has been pushing for a ban on cross-breeding of animals, but it has been difficult to enforce.
The law requires the government to establish a registry to keep track of all the animals in its care.
It does not require the animals to be registered.
In a 2013 report, the United Nations’ Committee on the Rights of the Child said the animal protection law has “not been able to protect animals from being exploited by humans for the purposes of trade, and has not protected them from exploitation by other animals.”
The group said India’s law is “totally inadequate” to protect dogs from the “abusive use of their parts for the purpose of commercial activities.”
In the meantime, the government has begun issuing permits to pet-trade firms to move animals between the country and the U.S. for a fee.
