At least 52 sheep, eight horses and five cows have died due to cloudburst and inclement weather in the upper forest areas in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district.

District sheep officer Budgam, Dr Asrhraf told the news agency Kashmir Dot Com that as per initial details in Dishkhall, Durian, Lathermand, Ayud, Koreg, and other upper reaches of Budgam district at least 52 sheep have died from last two days due to cloudburst and inclement weather.

The death toll may increase with time as the areas have no mobile accessibility, while these nomad families are grazing the animals, he said, adding that a massive rescue operation is underway in the areas.

“Our teams are on job at all the places and are providing rescue and necessary things,” news agency KDC quoted District sheep officer Budgam as having said.

The officer has appealed to all the shepherds who are grazing their cattle in upper reaches of Budgam that keeping the weather circumstances under consideration they should come to plain areas till weather gets cleared.
