Three cows have found a new home

Three cows (two in picture) have found a new home in the Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation’s renovated stackyard opposite Poura Bhavan in Salt Lake’s FD Block. The stackyard is used for repairing and servicing the civic body’s vehicles. Corporation workers had seized the cows after razing an illegal cowshed near Baisakhi footbridge in Sector I a few months ago. The civic body does not have an animal shed and so the cows were kept in the stackyard. A corporation official, who did not wish to be named, said a municipal worker had been deputed to take care of the animals. They are covered in blankets to keep the cold at bay and mangers have been fashioned out of garbage collection carts to feed them. Picture by Mayukh Sengupta
