Amid coronavirus outbreak, movie star Anushka Sharma has come out to voice her concerns that pets are under threat with rumours of the virus spreading among animals.

Anushka who is deeply concerned about this phenomenon took to her social media and wrote on Tuesday, "It's a humble request for all pet parents to not abandon their pets during these times of crisis. Please instead, take care of them and keep them safe with you. It's inhuman to abandon them."

Anushka has been a strong animal rights activist and has constantly spoken up against cruelty to animals and several other atrocities faced by animals.
