A study was conducted to determine the types and extent of cruelties inflicted in various species of farm animals in both city and suburban areas located within the radius of 12-15 km from the center of Faisalabad city. The survey was carried out in peak winter (December-January) and summer (May-June). Five hundred observations comprising 60 percent from city and 40 percent from suburban areas were made by conducting personal interviews of the owners through personal observations. The extent of cruelties like carelessness towards wounds, inflamed parts and lameness in donkeys, mules and horses was observed to be 37.3, 21.1 and 24.8%, respectively. Unnecessary exposure to severe weather of farm animals like buffalo, sheep and goat was found to be 22.3, 11.57, 22.5 and 19.6 percent, respectively. Some other cruelties such as vaginal insufflation of air or tail for milk let down were also noticed.
