During the course of the hearing, the Bench of Justice Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy observed, “The matter is of some concern not only because it pertains to cattle, but because the present petitioner draws the Court’s attention to animals which are slaughtered for human consumption or used in industry or the like.” Further, the State Government was directed to file its counter-affidavit within six weeks, dealing not only with the transportation of cattle, but also the transportation of goat and sheep and lamb in addition.

About the Plea One V S K Tamilselvan of Erode filed the plea before the Court stating that illegal transportation of cattle is rampant in the state, particularly from one district to another. It was also alleged that such transportation of cattle is in complete violation of the provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960. It was also submitted that despite the enactment of several rules and regulations, which provide for proper treatment of cattle, particularly cows, which are transported to slaughterhouses, no such regulations are followed.

A single bench of Justice H P Sandesh, set aside the order of the magistrate court which restored the animals to the man accused of cruelty and handed over the dogs to an NGO, Compassion Unlimited Plus Action, which expressed a willingness to take care of them. Right to live in a healthy and clean atmosphere and right to get protection from human beings against inflicting unnecessary pain or suffering is a right guaranteed to the animals under Section 3 and Section 11 of the PCA Act read with Article 51- A(g) and (h) of the Constitution of India”, the Court observed. Also, noting that animals, like the human beings have the capability of comprehending the physical and mental pain and that they do feel the severity of the physical harm inflicted on them, the Gujarat High Court last month denied bail to a man accused of various offences punishable under The Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act. The Bench of Justice Bela M. Trivedi further observed that the Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act and the Animal Preservation Act have been enacted to punish severely the persons indulged in inflicting cruelty to the animals.

It’s a family affair: Ticklebelly Lane Bakery, Lincoln

first_imgFamily matters at The Ticklebelly Lane Bakery and Tea House. And this family-run business wants its customers to feel at home in its site just off Lincoln’s High Street.“We wanted to create a place where people felt comfortable, a place for them to relax and be part of the Ticklebelly family,” explains Vicky Cook, operations manager and wife of co-owner James. A former headteacher, Vicky has recently moved away from education to help James and his mum Julie, Ticklebelly’s other owner, taking charge of a range of tasks across the business. Those visiting the site have a choice of three rooms in which to cosy up, including The Bakers’ Suite and Attic that offers a selection of armchairs and nooks in which to escape. The decor across all floors is homely, with walls hand-painted by Vicky, trinkets, and chalkboard sayings such as ‘a balanced diet is a cake in both hands’.It took a lot of work to convert the former photo shop into a homely setting. “It needed a little bit of TLC and a big bank balance,” says Vicky (James chuckles in the background suggesting she is being modest). “It took longer than planned and cost a bit more but it was worth it.”On arrival, shoppers are greeted by an impressive window display stacked with a variety of loaves from Ticklebelly’s top seller, sourdough, to the unusual Dragon’s Tail (see box out), focaccia, ciabatta and bakery staples of white and brown loaves. Sweet treats, including vegan and gluten-free options, and handmade sausage rolls topped with pastry pigs adorn the counter.While the pastries, cakes and other fare are prepared on-site by chef Dwayne and the team, the bread is made just outside the city at Ticklebelly’s dedicated bakehouse and delivered daily. The bakehouse also serves the business’s commercial contracts, including Doddington Hall, the local Waterstones café and nearby events firms.At the shop, it’s clear the locals are taken with Ticklebelly’s products by the way they interact with the staff. “The feedback from the locals has been great,” notes Vicky. “One woman told us ‘Lincoln needs a proper bread the way it used to be made’. She now comes in regularly.”With a menu covering breakfast, lunch and dinner, visitors can even stay late into the evening as the bakery hosts its first few Cake & Cocktails, Prosecco & Puddings night and other experience days. With that much to stay for, they’ll have to convince customers to leave.Who:  James and Vicky Cook(pictured with their two children), respectively owner and operations manager, Ticklebelly Lane BakeryWhat: Ticklebelly Lane Bakery and Tea House is just off Lincoln High Street and comprises a traditional bakery shop front with three floors dedicated to relaxing with cake and a cuppa or participating in an Italian bread baking class.Where: 5 Guildhall Street, Lincoln, LN1 1TTWhen: The bakery and tea house opened in November 2017, but the business has been a home bakery since 2010.Why: “We started off in our kitchen and grew and grew,” says Vicky. “The new site was a natural step for us – it’s about moving away from being the name behind other people’s food to putting the Ticklebelly stamp on Lincoln.”…On-site – Ticklebelly LaneOrigin of the name:“A public lane that used to run down the side of the house. A farmer would run his pigs down it and the grass would tickle their bellies.
