Animal Nepal today organized an interaction programme on stray cow management in Kathmandu Valley at the Lalitpur Sub Metropolitan City office. Being faced with injured cows on a weekly basis, Animal Nepal lobbies for improved management of abandoned cows which roam the city streets.
Occasionally stray cows are rounded up and left on an undisclosed location outside the valley. Representatives from three municipalities and DLSO brainstormed on possible solutions. Some of the strategies discussed were tagging of owned cows, assigning a budget and opening cow shelters.
An alliance has been formed which plans to develop a 5 year management plan. The next meeting will be organized by Kathmandu municipality.
