The Chinese cord cut off the wings of many birds
The Chinese rope wounded the birds
For the last several years, camps have been organized by the Animal Life Care organization under the Save the Birds campaign in the Kot area. Vijay Dabhi says that on the day of Uttarayan, we received 17 calls and most of the pigeons were injured. The birds have been injured by the Chinese rope. A rescue operation was carried out from RC Technical College for a bird injured by a Chinese rope. The Nakato bird was injured in a very serious condition due to the Chinese rope and was treated by the veterinary doctor of Animal Life Care and was admitted to Forest Hospital for further treatment. Kite should not be chewed with Chinese rope. If there is a bunch of rope around you, if the rope is hanging, it should be properly disposed of or destroyed. In such a rope more birds are trapped and die.
