Enraged Bull Dies After Creating Havoc for Six Hours

The incident , near Domoria Pul , of a stray bull in rage which wounded dozens of passers by and damaged numerous vehicles particulary rickshaws and two wheelers was most unfortunate both for citizens of Jalandhar as well as the animal .

Since Green Revolution in Punjab which saw the mechanisation of farms and rural transport , male cattle have been rendered useless . Newly born calves are simply abandoned . They are left to fend for themselves and , ultimately , die a cruel death . Many cattle both male and female ( after they stop giving milk ) are driven out on to the streets . This results in sad incidents like mentioned above .

A concerted effort should be made to formulate a responsible policy towards stray cattle which should also avoid any cruelty towrds the animals .
