SINDH: Dead bodies of hundreds of caged pets were found dead at Karachi’s Empress Market by animal activists. The pets were abandoned due to coronavirus lockdown.
Abandoned when Karachi went into lockdown resulted in the death of hundreds of dogs, cats and rabbits.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus the Government had imposed strict lockdown of the markets only allowing the food essential and the pharma to stay open. Unfortunately the government bodies forgot the poor voiceless animals.
The lockdown kept them from going to their pet shops, regrettably the pet shop owners didn’t seem to raise their voices.
This is the condition of Karachi Pet Market, similar reports are being received from different cities. The owners of the pet shops have fled due to coronavirus-led fears forgetting their pets.
According to a video shared on social media by Ayesha Chundrigar founder ACF Animal Rescue, the animals were found in a very devastating condition. About 70% of the pets were found dead laying on the grounds on in their cages.
