A cow brought to the Jivdaya Charitable Trust for treatment left the doctors apalled when they found over 100 kg of waste from the animal’s stomach.
The cow, that was rescued from the Sabarmati suburb of Ahmedabad, was pregnant and was brought in for treatment as it had trouble walking. Given the circumstances, the doctors operated on the cow and found plastic bags and socks in the cow’s belly.
The garbage, that managed to fill three whole buckets, also included bits of metal scrap like nails, screws and wires.
According to workers of the trust, similar incidents have surfaced before where around 25-40 kg of plastic was recovered from cows’ bellies.
Surprisingly, the plastic the doctors found was under 4 microns thick. which has been banned by the ministry of forest and environment.
