Local units take initiatives to manage stray animalsThe Ghorahi Sub-metropolitan City took around 100 stray animals under control and transported them to Chaklighat
Local units in Dang have taken initiatives to manage stray animals, mainly cattle, after receiving complaints of the strays causing road accidents.
Ghorahi Sub-metropolitan City has come up with a plan to manage the stray animals and keep them in a forest area in Chaklighat.
“Stray animals have become a huge problem for us. They are left loose on the streets which causes traffic snarls and road accidents,” said Mayor Narulal Chaudhary. “These animals have been taken to Chaklighat and will be kept in a temporary structure for now,”
According to him, Chaklighat is some distance away from human settlements and has enough pasture land for the strays’ survival.
“We will soon set up a Gaushala (cow shed) to manage the stray animals,” said Chaudhary. He plans to keep the animals in a shed and use their milk, urine and dung for commercial purpose.
On Tuesday, the sub-metropolis took around 100 stray animals under control and transported them to Chaklighat.
Similarly, Tulsipur Sub-metropolis has also started managing stray animals. The local unit recently handed over 125 strays to Tulasi Cattle Conservation Cooperative.
The metropolis has provided around 2 bighas and 18 katthas of land to the cooperative on lease for 20 years to build cowsheds for the strays, according to Pandey.Meanwhile, Babai, Dangisharan and Gadhawa rural municipalities in Dang have already built animal sheds to manage stray animals.
