Brahmavar, Nov 23: With the widening of the national highway, road accidents have increased. Most of these accidents involve vehicles. However, it is concerning that more and more animals are losing their lives in accidents.

A number of cattle keep dying in road accidents that have been happening often at Kota, Saligrama, Sastan, and Tekkatte on national highway 66.

On Saturday, a bull died in an accident which happened on the national highway at Chitrapadi, Saligrama. On the very next day, two more bulls were killed. Three to four cows were injured. After getting information from 'Fodder for Cows team, Win Lights Club , Parampalli and Panchajanya Sangha, Saligrama town panchayat president, Sulata Hegde, visited the spot. She gave information to Sastan tollgate and expressed sorrow at these incidents. The 'Fodder for Cows’ team performed the funeral of the deceased cows as per religious tenets.

Sulata Hegde also took initiative and ensured that Dr Krishnamurty of Chempi Milk Producers Union treated the injured cows. Sulata said that the cows needing further treatment would be taken to Saligrama town panchayat and treated.

Various organizations including the above have expressed anger at the practice of the people to drive away male calves immediately after they are born. They have demanded that the stray cattle should be sent to cow shelters at the beginning itself and warned the people against forcing male calves to roam around the roads. President of Panchajanya Sangha Parampalli, Krishnamurty Marakala, secretary, Krishna Acharya, Win Light sports club's Krishna Devadiga and office bearers i the 'Fodder for Cows' team, Yogeesh Nairy of Sastan toll and other staff were present.

    Where is vishwa hindu parishad and bajrang dal now . They only talk on stage about cow protection . But in fact they are not even concerned. Atleast other organizations are taking care of these innocent animals.

    Those who behind the cows & cow politics are not taking care of their own cows. This is the real picture of these stray cows.

    The person who leaves his cattle on the road should be imprisoned for 5year because it is gomatha

    Unquote "The 'Fodder for Cows’ team performed the funeral of the deceased cows as per religious tenets". Now how did they ascertain, that the cow belonged to particular community.

    Fake lovers of gomatha shedding crocodile tears only for political gains. I myself witness so called cow lovers hitting with whip everyday during rain when they seek for shelter at their premises.
