MCD to sue owners of stray cows courtesy attached ear tags

Becoming stringent towards the owners who leave the cows and their progeny on the roads after milking them to feed on their own, the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) will sue all such owners under the Uttarakhand Protection of Cow Progeny Act.

Informing this, the senior veterinary officer of the corporation Dr DC Tiwari said that many cows and their progeny are left to suffer on roads for the whole day on daily basis and the owners take them in during the evening to milk them and then leave them again on the roads after milking them again in the morning. He said that there are currently about 80 cows including their progeny in Kanji House which have the ear tags attached issued by Uttarakhand Livestock Development Board (ULDP). Tiwari said, “We have asked ULDP for the details of the owners of these 80 cows and when we will get the all required information, we will file the case against the owners under the Uttarakhand Protection of Cow Progeny Act.” He pointed out that though the corporation takes care of all the stray cattle in the Kanji House and Gau Sadan, cruelty against animals will not be tolerated in the city and the culprits will face the consequences.
