2100 cows disappear mysteriously from Jabalpur shelter, probe ordered

New Delhi: In what appears to be an indication of a very big exposure in the coming days, 2100 cows have gone missing from a shelter in Jabalpur. From April 2016 to July 2107 more than 4592 cows were brought to the shelter, claims a senior official of the local civic body’s stray animal catching squad which sends the astray cows to this shelter. 

Of these cows, 1298 cows were released after their owners paid penalty and when a counting was done the shelter just had around 1100 cows done 2100 cows were missing.

Now sensing the sensitivity of the matter the Jabalpur district administration has instituted an inquiry to solve the mystery of missing cows. Many cows are actually missing from a charitable cow shelter in the district of central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

Malay Jain, in-charge of charitable cow shelter said that space is a major problem for them and that had informed the divisional commissioner of Jabalpur that they cannot accomodate more cows. He further informed that they organised camps after every two months in which cows were given to the farmers.
