When cows crowd OMR

Our stretch of OMR, right in front of Mantri's,is taken over by an influx of cows every evening.They are,presumably,let loose by their owners. This was okay when OMR was a less travelled street and there was lot of greenary around for the cows to feed on. What they get to eat nowadays is garbage thrown around on roadside,
These cows having such a run of the road baffle on-coming traffic. An odd, unlucky one gets run over by a speeding truck.
Took this photo near the bus stop at Hindustan University. When this cow gets home the calf wouldn't have a chance to get anywhere near the cow till the dairyman had milked her dry.The cows on road stay there until dark when the herdsmen show up to drive them home.

  1. I found your blog from camera critters, I love the pictures here.
    If you have time, I hope you check out my blog too.

  2. Mumbai municipality does not allow people to have cows in the city. The city is free of cows roaming the streets.OMR - Chennai is full of cows , especially in Perungudi Area. Perungudi Residencial area is full of cows and cow dung on the streets .If people want to have cows then they should keep them within their compounds.Any cows roaming on the roads should be ceased and the owners should be made to pay heavy fine to get them back.After some time the cows should be auctioned in the villages
