Around 10 cows, 5 buffalos, claves, sheep, and goats have died of a contagious disease in Belo town and its adjoining areas during a week.
According to local sources, the actual number of cattle that died of this disease could be staggeringly high as compared to the given numbers.
Mohammad Ibrahim a local cattle breeder said that the lungs of an animal are badly affected by this disease and it develops a high-grade fever. The disease barely takes two to three days to kill the animal.
The heavy fever makes the animal lazy, the throat of the animal starts swelling causing difficulty in breathing that results in its death; he said.
The poor residents in the rural areas of the district rely on cattle heads as their major source of livelihood have sustained huge financial loss and the disease is likely to play more havoc in these areas if the measures were not taken.
