Radium to rescue: Ra bands tied around stray animals in Kangra

Kangra, Nov 12 (UNI) Following in the footsteps of the Uttar Pradesh government, which recently tied radium bands on the horns and necks of stray cattle, in order to save them and commuters from accidental injuries, especially during nights, a local NGO on Tuesday tied radium straps around the necks of stray animals in this temple town and its outskirts.
Founder of the 'Dyianoo Ashray Sadnum Trust' Ajay Sehgal told UNI that there were at least 5000 stray animals in Kangra town and its suburbs moving on the roads in day and night, inviting fatal road accidents.
Recently, a youth was killed on-the-spot near Kangra Ghat, when a stray animal came abruptly in front of his motorcycle.
Kangra Sub-Divisional Magistrate Jatin Lal launched the campaign by tying a Radium Neck Strap around the neck of a stray cow in the town.
As a number of state and National Highways touch this temple town, it was important to take a concrete step for the safety of the commuters, as well as the stray animals, said Mr Sehgal.
He said 2000 stray animals will be brought under the purview of this programme in the first phase.
On Monday, the Trust donated an ambulance to Dr Rajinder Prasad Govt Medical College at Tanda, Mr Sehgal disclosed, adding that the Trust will donate a 'Dead Body carrying van' to this medical college in the days to come.
