While on a walk around the mid day, I noticed this flock of sheep unaccompanied by a shepherd crossing the road outside the gate of CMC Vellore. The were not bothered by the traffic!
They crossed road seeing the foliage on the opposite side of the road. They stayed there for a while grazing on the grass and feeding on the foliage!
This instinct for finding food is a desperate longing for animals.
There is scarcity of food and water due to a failed monsoon!
People walk long distances to fetch water and animals go searching for green pastures!
This is a common sight in rural areas.
I am not sure whether enough is being done by the government to ease the situation!
This calls for voluntary action! I noticed an elderly gentleman distributing bread and biscuits to sheep and dogs in the Vellore fort yesterday!
