Six peahens found dead in Bijnor


Six peahens have died in a village in Bijnor. Four were found dead and four others were recovered in an unconscious state from a field in Shadipur village on Monday, district forest officials said.

“Two more died on Tuesday during treatment,” M. Semmaran, Divisional Forest Officer, told The Hindu.

He said two doves and a partridge were also found dead in the same field. Mr Semmaran, who is a veterinary doctor as well, said the cause of the deaths were not clear yet.

Wild berries

He said around 100 wild red berries were found stuffed in the digestive tract of peahens along with a few wheat grains.

Mr. Semmaran didn’t rule out pesticides that farmers spray on crops for the deaths.
