The proposed law assumes that animals are "living non-human sentient beings with a nervous system scientifically capable of feeling pain and experiencing other emotions" including "suffering and anguish," according to a ministry statement. It would ban slaughtering animals primarily for their fur, feathers, skin, or wool (which many consider to be an extraordinary provision) and limit the sales of dogs and cats to reputable breeders, ban people from giving animals as gifts or prizes, and prohibit the poultry industry practice of killing male chicks because they don't lay eggs. The legislation will not apply to most farm animals, a common provision in animal rights laws....

This is not a cute picture.
That's an elephant calf being helped across a man-made barrier on the Palakkad road near Coimbatore from earlier this week. A reality that elephants have to struggle with every day in India.
The reason? Lack of empathy in humans.

Good news...In 2006, the Arizona Department of Transportation identified the Oracle Road area as a critical habitat linkage in a statewide study, backed up with research from Northern Arizona University. Although project organizers anticipated seeing wildlife using the bridge, they didn’t expect animals would use the bridge so quickly after construction finished, Campbell said. “It was actually surprising that they were there so soon, usually, it takes them a little while to figure it out.” While the bridge is being used by animals that crossed the road before as evidenced by studies of roadkill other species are using the bridge to cross the road for the first time...

Researchers are using A.I. applications that incorporate a game theory model for wildlife protection.One app developed in 2013 is called PAWS (which stands for the Protection Assistant for Wildlife Security).PAWS analyzes the terrain and topography of an area, incorporating the paths where animals most often travel, which means poachers will be more likely to travel them as well. The app can prescribe randomized patrols, which can keep poachers from learning a pattern and predicting when a wildlife officer may be nearby.CAPTURE (Comprehensive Anti-Poaching Tool with Temporal and Observation Uncertainty Reasoning) is used to predict how likely a poacher attack will be. And to combat illegal loggers, researchers have developed a method known as SORT (which stands for Simultaneous Optimization of Resource Teams)...
