Six brought on boats from flood-ravaged houses

Animals Husbandry Department to ensure scientific disposal of dead cattle

JalandharThe mobile teams on boats which have been pressed into operation in the flood-hit villages of Jalandhar brought the six dead cattle, on Sunday morning, informed an official spokesman of Government of Punjab.

They were disposed of in the supervision of experts from Animal Husbandry in village Nall, said him. Scientific disposal of dead cattle due to floods in various villages of the district has been started. The receding flood-water in the villages mandated the disposal owing to unbearable stench and fear of an outbreak of an epidemic. The teams are moving to the house to house to bring out the dead cattle

It is estimated that around 60 cattle head lost life to floods in Jalandhar. Once the water recedes further, the dead cattle will be brought out on tractor-trolleys.
