Sheep Killed by Train

30 June 2014

INDIA - At least 350 sheep were killed by a train in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh last week.

The flock was reported to be crossing the rail tracks at night in a remote area in Srikakulam district when they were struck by the train.

According to a report on BBC, the flock ran towards the tracks when a leopard attacked them.
However, the authorities have denied this and say it is an attempt to claim bogus compensation.
