Bengaluru pet store owner sets example, cares for caged animals as lockdown extends

With the deadly coronavirus striking India and the country being locked down, humans are not the only ones impacted. Pet animals housed in stores are also left hungry and thirsty, craving for ventilation. 

Timely food and water and some good ventilation are the need of the hour for pets housed in shops. Due to lockdown, they are deprived of these basic things. 
Many birds reportedly died in Shivajinagar pet market in Bengaluru. 
Realising this, now pet store owners like Sabeer Ali have taken measures. But only when lockdown is lifted, feeding and ventilation for long hours can be guaranteed.
