Will Modi’s minions lynch anyone? 

GODAVARI: Reports from Andhra Pradesh’s East Godavari district exposes hollowness of so called ‘Gau-Rakshaks.’

At least 30 cattle, including cows have died at the Society for Prevention of Cruelty towards Animals (SPCA) shelter in Kakinada due to starvation.

The shocking apathy came to light after officials at SPCA found decomposed carcasses on heap of dung.

The animal shelter located in a 2.5 acre land has a capacity to host around 250 bovines, is housing around 500.

The overcrowded cattle shed lacks proper facilities. There is no fodder and drinking water available for so many cattle.

Speaking to The Hindustan Times, Joint Director of animal husbandry V Venkateshwar Rao said, “We have recovered 14 carcasses of cattle believed to have died on Tuesday. Four more cattle died on Wednesday. There was no fodder and water at the centre and the cattle have apparently been starving for quite some time. The animals that survived were virtually in ‘skin-to-bone’ condition and were not even in a position to take intravenous fluids and injections. There was no attempt to clean the premises, which had knee-deep dung and slush. Heavy rains in the last two days made their condition worse.”

However, SPCA Joint Secretary SR Gopal told the Mumbai Mirror, “We do not have any financial support from the government to take care of 500 cattle…every day police hand over some cattle they detain on highways while being illegally transported from within the state or from the neighbouring states. We are totally dependent on donations.”

Will COW TERRORISTS attack these shelter in charge ?

Innocent people are being killed across the country in the name of ‘Gau-Bhakti’ at the hands of self-appointed cow-vigilantes.
