1/8. Another first for India: police in Amravati, Maharashtra are holding 58 camels “in detention.” They also arrested their pastoralist herders – who’ve managed bail – from Kachchh on charges of cruelty to the animals. Story link at end of thread.

2/8. The 5 semi-nomadic herders were going to Rabari settlements in Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh to deliver camels that communities there had ordered through kin in Kachchh. They’ve been doing this for decades without anyone accusing them of cruelty.

3/8. The police acted on a complaint from the Bharatiya Prani Mitra Sangh (BPMS), Hyderabad, whose leader claims the camels were being taken to slaughterhouses in Hyderabad. So the camels are now lodged in a gauraksha kendra (cattle shelter) in Amravati.

Breaking↘️ @US_FDA Finds Unexpected Antibiotic Resistance #AMR #Genes in ‘Gene-Edited’ Dehorned #Cattle: "The @Recombinetics gene-edited cattle do contain #DNA unnatural to cattle". independentsciencenews.org/news/fda-finds… @Act4AnimalsEU
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU "FDA’s demonstration that gene-editing techniques can introduce foreign DNA is likely to be seen as a significant blow to the no-regulation argument. It is also a powerful vindication of the #EU approach, which is to regulate gene-edited organisms as #GMOs."
