Mountain goats taken from Bhaktapur

Posted by Anup Baral October 08 , 2016 :
Thousands of mountain goats and sheep from the eastern region have been brought to Bhaktapur. Every day, over 500 goats arrive in Sallaghari, Tinkune and Bhaktapur for sale. “It is very difficult to bring the goats inside the valley on time,” said Shyam Shrestha, a salesman. “The valley is currently witnessing summer season while the animals are brought from cooler places of the hilly region. Due to difference in temperature and climate, the animals are at high risk of dying,” he added. Shrestha added that shepherds had to pay tax to the District Development Committee for quarantine checks in different border areas such as Ghasa, Tatopani, and Khaireni in order to bring the animals to the valley.
