An officials of the district animal sheep husbandry, Dr Ashraf said about 52, sheep, eight horses and five cows died due to inclement weather and cloud burst in forest areas of Dishkhall, Durian, Lathermand, Ayud, Koreg and other upper reaches of central Kashmir’s Bdugam district during the past two days.

He said the number of dead animals could be more as the areas have no mobile accessibility.

He said a massive rescue operation is underway in these areas. “Sheep husbandry teams have been dispatched to these places who are providing rescue and necessary things to the nomads”.

The officer has appealed to all the shepherds who are grazing their cattle in upper reaches of Budgam to come on plain areas along with their herd till the weather improves. (UNI)
