Bengaluru: After the state government passed the Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill, 2020 in the assembly on Wednesday, December 9, Zoos in Karnataka are waiting for clarity on the bill.

It is a known fact that the zoos need large amounts of beef daily to feed the tigers, lions, and leopards. All zoos procure beef from certified suppliers, six days a week (not Tuesday).

Bannerghatta Biological Park needs around 600 kg a day, while Mysuru Zoo needs around 350 kg. The new bill passed by the state government has led to some uncertainty and there are many unanswered questions.

Speaking with this regard an official from the Zoo Authority of Karnataka, said “The new bill has led to some uncertainty, but we cannot comment till the rules are framed. We have been following similar guidelines while procuring beef for the carnivores. However, a final word from the government is still awaited.”

Amid  bedlam, the controversial anti-cow slaughter bill was passed in the Karnataka Assembly on Wednesday, with the Congress members staging a walkout in protest.

The bill known as the Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill-2020 seeks a total ban on the slaughter of cows in the state and stringent punishment to those who indulge in smuggling, illegal transportation, atrocities on cows, and slaughtering them, BJP sources said.
