GHODAGHODI— Hundreds of cows were found dead in sheds being managed at national forest in Ghodaghodi Municipality-8 of Kailali. The municipality has managed the sheds for the protection of stray cows.
In lack of proper arrangement for feed, drinking water and space for cattle in the sheds, there has been rise in the death toll of cows, said Lal Singh Dhami, a shepherd.
“There is no proper arrangement for drinking water, feed and space required for the protection of cows. The death toll increases as the cattle are tied under the open sky. In the beginning, there were around 3,000 cows in numbers, which has now reduced to only 150”, he shared.
The municipality has spent huge amount for cattle management but inability to arrange drinking water and proper space for grazing has caused the increasing death toll of cows in sheds.
