Why should I suffer in an AC 1st class of someone else's dog and cat?
( some of us refuse to feed hungry people and have pets at home) have specified rules for cats and dogs- the option of keeping it with you, provided you are travelling in First Class or Air Conditioned First Class and that you book either the two- or four-berth area entirely.
Alternatively, dogs can be carried in the luggage/brake van in specially designed boxes. Unfortunately, with trains, even if you book the full berth, if someone in that compartment objects to the dog, your poor pooch will have to travel in the luggage van anyway.
In USA for instance, Amtrak does not allow pets at all (except for service dogs) and there are no other large train operators in the United States.
Why should a fellow passenger suffer another person's animal love carrying a pet that also in AC coach? AC compartment which is closed room in First AC can transmit any diseases the animal has.
Railways should insist on booking these cats and dogs or any animal in break van only. more
To my mind taking pets to crowded places like Bus Stand, Market places, Railway Stations, air ports etc. is undesirable and fraught with risk to public. With all love for animals and their welfare I am surprised to see how people can compare humans with pets/animals. If we have to consider convenience between human and animals I would vote for Human.
