Bull rescued by P/ling Taxi community makes it to tshedhar

Abandoned bull sent for tshedhar

A bull which resided in Phuentsholing town in the Food Corporation of Bhutan (FCB) complex for more than two years will be sent for tshedhar to Thimphu by the taxi drivers of Phuentsholing.

A committee was formed by the taxi drivers and the local people of Phuentsholing to send the bull for the tshedhar and they even contributed jointly the sum of Nu 24,000.

All of a sudden Mr. Govind Limbu of Phuentsholing (Kabreytar) of Damdara announced himself as an owner of the bull and sold it to a muslim man Mr. Atijual of Guabari (Macheybastey) under Jaigaon district for Nu 17,000.

Mr. Wangchuk, the Assistant manager of FCB (Food Corporation of Bhutan) saw the Muslim man taking the bull with him to the border areas and stopped him immediately.

He said “I have been seeing this particular bull here in the town for so many years and suddenly a man is taking him along to the border area to slaughter it, so I could not resist and called the taxi drivers”.

Presently the bull is under the care of the Phuentsholing BAFRA under ministry of agriculture.

Mr. Pendenla, Quarantine Inspector said “we are looking forward to send the bull to Thimphu but with the Foot and mouth diseases (FMD) outbreak near the Amo chhu it will be kept here until the disease is controlled”.

A taxi driver Thinley said that it is sad to see Bhutanese people doing all this things for the money not caring about the sinful activities.

“But now we are happy to see the bull is taken care of,” he said.

Mr. Kinzang said that it is good that the bull will be taken to tshedhar and we look forward to donate money for the tshedhar.

Presently, the bull is kept in the Road Safety and Transport Authority (RSTA) compound and a herder is paid Nu 300 per day to look after the bull.
