Local Buffalo Becomes Village Celebrity


VETERINARIANS in India had to retrieve a farmer’s thaali necklace from a buffalo’s stomach after it accidentally swallowed it, Malaysia Nanban reported.

A few days ago, Geetha Bai realised that her thaali was missing after feeding the animals. She suspected that a buffalo might have swallowed it.

With a metal detector, veterinarians found that the thaali had indeed ended up in the animal’s stomach.

The animal has become a minor celebrity in the village, with neighbours visiting the buffalo to see the star of the odd story.

Work on the new building at the school in Jelebu, Negri Sembilan, began in 2014 at a cost of RM8.5mil.

Jelebu MP Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias held a meeting with the district education office, Syarikat Air Negeri Sembilan, Tenaga Nasional Bhd, the school board, the Parent-Teacher Association and the building contractor to find a quick solution to the matter.
