Scavengers in City

Some animals feed on thrown-away food. The crows and the feral dogs would be the usual. But, have you seen cows?

tumblr_l9eibtvZ2Y1qcv7ogo1_400Of course, cattle are vegetarian by nature. But going through the roads of Bangalooru, you can see them rummaging through the garbage piles. If you take a closer look, you can see them deliciously chomping the polythene bags and the biodegradable trash bags. Can you overlook the fact that some amount of meat maybe gobbled up by them?

More than two decades have passed since the epidemic Mad Cow disease in the UK. However, there is no guarantee that it won’t come back. Mad Cow disease is actually called Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. Yes, it sounds silly, but it has caused even the death of humans.

It was reported that about 4.4 million cattle were killed during the eradication program in 1989. Before this widespread disease could be eradicated, it spread to humans killing about 200 of us. During 80’s (Although I think, this must have been happening for a long time), the cattle rearers used to mix the animal by-products with the cattle feed. Over the time, the consumption of meat by the animals led to the Mad Cow disease.

Almost all the areas in Bangalore city has a particular type of space for garbage disposal, which the municipality does not allot. It can be a corner of a road, a sidewalk, among the ruins of a building. It can be any place the public feels convenient to dump garbage. Isn’t that so moronic?

Those who have seen the city at least once will agree when I say the garbage situation here is hopeless. For a start, deploying huge trash containers will be a good idea, instead of tossing it on the sidewalk. At least, this would keep animals away and the city clean.
