PETA Files Complaint Over Ad Featuring Parakeets

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a complaint against Samsung in India over an advertisement for Samsung’s X200 mobile phone.

The advertisement shows two children releasing a couple parakeets from their cage. But according to PETA coordinator N G Jayashimha,

The parakeets used in the advertisement are protected under the Wildlife (Protection) Act (WPA) 1972. Trading, trafficking, caging or displaying the birds is banned.
