Almost 100 kg of waste including plastic bags, socks, nails and other waste products were found in the stomach of a cow in Ahmedabad. The doctors of the Jivdaya Charitable Trust in Ahmedabad were shocked to discover this when the cow was brought to them for treatment.

The cow was rescued from the Sabarmati area, informed Kartik Sastri, one of the doctors at the trust. When she was brought for treatment, the doctor found out that the cow was pregnant. She was not in good health and was rather weak. She underwent a couple of treatment, but in spite of that, she was unable to walk. This was when the doctor decided to operate her to see what’s wrong.

On the operation table, the doctors were shocked to find tons of garbage inside her stomach. The garbage included screws, worn-out tools, wires, pieces of ragged clothes and even banned plastic bags. The doctors said that they removed three buckets of garbage from her stomach. Kartik Shastri later said that this is not the first time they are encountering such an event. Earlier they have operated and removed around 40 kgs of plastic bags from the stomach of the cow.

He further added that the garbage that is scattered all across the city and has the cows feeding on them has the maximum of plastic waste. The cow that was brought to them had 98 kgs of plastic waste in her stomach. That is why he is pleading everyone to stick to the rule laid out by the ministry of forest and environment which says that plastic bags less than 4 microns shall be banned everywhere. He said that this rule must be strictly implemented if we want to save our environment, cattle, and the ecology.
