Cabinet discusses roaming herd of cows

2

Cabinet Notes:

Action is to be taken against the roaming herd of cows regularly seen crossing Queen Elizabeth Highway and Factory Road and even Old Parham Road. Discussions have been held withe owner of the herd.

They will be impounded in order to lessen the likelihood of accidents, and will subsequently be sold or auctioned to farmers if the owner does not reclaim the same.

  1. What accidents??

    these animals are a lovely attraction and a restful meditation to us as locals and for our visitors. Has anyone of you ever decided to just go to the area between MSJMC, the Rising Suns and Dredgers, and old parliament to just relax and enjoy nature? I guess not!! Try it and just enjoy watching these cattles roam or relax freely. they do not trouble no one, no one.

    So I don’t know who is driving in these areas over 15 mph talking about they causing accidents. Or is it some of you mouths are so big and that everything you all see, you take it for food.

    Come on and leave the damn cattles alone, let nature be the medicine for the fast pace life we covet and lust after.

  2. Wow! Cabinet was engaged in some serious intellectual discussion. There must be a policy in the Ministry of Agriculture to deal with the issue of roaming animals. The Ministry should be addressing that problem on an ongoing basis. When I was a boy I can recall that there were facilities around the country called “POUNDS” where roaming animals would be impounded and the owners would have to pay a fee to get the animals back. What has become of that system? Modernity and urbanization has caused such a system to fall by the wayside?
