Terrible Tuesday, Terrible for the Animals Too

Thousands of buffaloes, goats and sheep died by drowning in tabelas and slaughterhouses across suburban Mumbai as their owners left the shackled animals - many of whom could have otherwise swum to safety - before escaping themselves.

I'm sorry, but I just cannot bear to post any of the pictures. But they deserve to be seen if only as evidence of our own cruelty as human beings. Rediff has this report on the deaths of buffaloes in tabelas across suburban Mumbai. Ashish Panchal has more pictures of the devastation. NDTV has this brief report.
