KATHMANDU: Lockdown imposed to curb coronavirus pandemic has not only affected the lives of people but also hit the animals especially the street animals in the towns.

However, the attempts made by Pashupati Area Development Trust and Asahaya Bachchha Bachchhi Samrakshan Abhiyan have rescued over 200 abandoned cattle from the streets of the Kathmandu Valley during this hard time.

Cows and calves, abandoned by their owners in lockdown, were rescued at the initiation of Pradeep Dhakal, member-secretary, and Milan Kumar Thapa, treasurer of the Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT). The  rescue work was coordinated by Asahaya Bachchha Bachchhi Samrakshan Abhiyan.

According to Milan Kumar Thapa, Treasurer of the PADT, the Trust has rescued more than 200 cattle from Gothathar, Banepa, Dhulikhel, Koteshwor, Sano Thimi, Gongabu Bus Park and many other places.

People have been staying at home to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 but some cattle owners have left the calves in the jungle areas for the meal of tiger or other wild animals.
Thapa describes this negligence towards the animals as the sign of decline in humanity.

“Even new born calves are found abandoned by the owners,” he says, “It indicates that humanity is dying down.”

Treasurer Thapa shared that PADT in its fourth master plan has decided to build a cow shed at its Gothatar-based land.

Out of PADT’s 534 ropanis of land at Gothatar, PADT is planning to construct a cow shelter in over 100 ropanis of land.

In addition to the shelter for the abandoned cows, PADT’s master plan includes schemes for a hospital, Pashupati University, Yoga Center and other infrastructures related to various services.
