Several bovines rescued from river in central India
Around 60-65 bovines were rescued after they had been trapped in the Son river in central India’s Madhya Pradesh.
This incident took place at Jogdaha bridge in Sidhi district on October 28.
Visuals showed efforts being made to rescue the cows. Ropes were tied around the bovine’s body and a crane was used to lift them to safety after being taken out of the river.
The Atal Kamdhenu Gau Sewa Sansthan received a call regarding the incident from an unknown woman. They rushed to the spot where around 20-25 bovines were already dead while others were straying around. These cows were stuck at this river hungry and thirsty for almost a week before they were rescued.
A man was also seen trying to lift up one such calf which had been stranded in the water. It took about 7-8 hours to rescue the bovins.
This cow rescue operation was conducted jointly by the Atal Kamdhenu Gau Sewa Sansthan along with officials from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and locals’ support.
