The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court with regards to the issue of Glanders in horses, mules, ponies, and donkeys in Delhi seeking directions to implement Prevention and Control of Infectious and Contagious Disease in Animal Act, 2009 and National Action Plan for its control and eradication.

The petition has further sought directions to the respondent to test all the horses, mules, ponies, and donkeys in Delhi immediately, stating that “…instead of testing every horse, mules, ponies, and donkey they are being housed and plying in, Delhi has closed its eyes towards the approaching zoonotic disease and is not taking any measures to prevent people of Delhi from the outbreak of another life-threatening disease.”

The petition states that “Glanders is a zoonotic disease and is transmitted from animal to humans and in case if preventive measures are not taken at once then even the human beings may get infected which may be fatal for the humans.
