The Kathmandu Metropolis has decided to manage stray cattle. According to mayor Balen Shah, any cattle to be found on the streets will be attended by the local government and transported to a ‘kanji house’ or shelter for animals at Kopugaun of Dakshinkali municipality-7.
“Stray cattle are left starved. They do not have access to drinking water and medical care when needed. In addition to this, their presence on the street has increased the risk of road accident. So we have decided to manage them in the kanji house,” he wrote on the social site.
The mayor said 10 metric tons silage has been purchased to feed them and two workers have been contracted on a daily basis to provide care for the cattle. The Dakshinkali municipality is to cooperate with the KMC for the management of stray cattle, it is said.
