Beauty queen-turned-actress Celina Jaitley was so overwhelmed with a ban on use of horses, elephants and camels by police here that she sent flowers to the officers.
Celina, who is an active member of animal rights organisation People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), sent bouquets and a card to commissioner of police Satyapal Singh and DCP Special Branch R.P. Sengaonkar who were instrumental in banning the use of the animals in the city, said a statement released here Thursday.
'Thank you for standing up for those who cannot speak for themselves', Celina wrote in the card.
Anuradha Sawhney, PETA India chief functionary, said: 'Humane people around the world are watching India's treatment of animals. We applaud the Pune officers for taking action and urge other officers to do so, too'.
The animals were forced to pull oversized loads or give joyrides on crowded streets.

wow great work by her... dogs are the most faithful animals and for sure being stry dog is not their choice as we have lot of children also who don't have home so we can't expect them to have homes but that does not mean they should be killed ???? she is doing good job for the animals who can't speak for themselves...
@aadaa: are you trying to say just because they are stray dogs, means they should be killed? hypothetically speaking, if an orphan was on the streets like the dog, would you have that child killed?
animals have feelings just like us humans, they should not be merely killed for 'needs' and on top of that i congratulate celina for this very act.
