Karnal, July 8

The Karnal Municipal Corporation (KMC) has launched a campaign to make city roads free of stray cattle and shifted 45 of these to a gaushala and nandigram in the past one week.

Deputy Municipal Commissioner (DMC) Ashok Kumar said the campaign had been initiated under the supervision of Chief Sanitary inspector Surinder Chopra.

On Monday, as many as six animals were captured from Ward 20. Similarly, 14 animals were captured from the green belt of Sector 6, Sector 4, and the Karn Vihar area last Thursday.

As many as 11 animals were lifted from Sector 32 on Friday and seven stray animals were captured from Novelty Road and the Jundla Gate area on Saturday.

He said all animals had been tagged at the Animal Husbandry Hospital and shifted to the MC’s gaushala and nandigram.

“Stray cattle on the roads pose a risk to commuters. To address the issue, campaigns to capture such animals are conducted regularly. These stray cattle are provided fodder and other facilities at gaushala and nandigram,” the DMC said.

They are allowed to roam freely in the vacant space within the premises. All animals are given proper health care, with a retired veterinarian from the Animal Husbandry Department appointed as a caretaker at the gaushala.

He said the number of animals at the gaushala had increased significantly. To ensure all cattle are well taken care of, the MC is contacting other gaushalas in the city to relocate some of the animals. A meeting will be called soon by the MC for this purpose.

The DMC appealed to dairy owners and the general public not to abandon their animals on the streets after use, as it disrupts the city’s cleanliness and traffic management.

He said the campaign to capture stray animals will continue in the future, with instructions given to all zone in-charges of the sanitation branch.
