Another camel found dead with all four legs amputated in Sindh

A camel was found dead on Saturday with all four legs amputated in Kunri tehsil, Sindh. The lifeless animal was discovered at Morjhango Turn, as shown in videos obtained by a local news channel.

Abdul Rashid, the owner of the camel, stated that the animal, which had been sick, went out to graze the day before.

“We don’t want to accuse anyone,” Rashid remarked, explaining his efforts to gather more information about the incident.

“I have around 40 to 45 female camels. While all of them returned after grazing last evening, she was left behind alone. God knows who made her run, beat her, and cut her legs. We don’t know anything yet… we’ll see what to do next.”

This incident follows another horrific case of animal cruelty just weeks earlier. Before Eid-ul-Adha on June 14, a camel in Sanghar’s Mundh Jamrao area was tortured, and its leg was severed.

A viral video on social media showed the camel in agony. The owner protested at the Sanghar Press Club, holding the severed leg.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah responded to the incident, directing authorities to take action against those responsible. Senior Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon reported that five suspects had been arrested, and a case was registered.

“Though the matter had been settled between the camel owner and the accused, this act is inhuman and unacceptable, which is why the case was registered on behalf of the state,” Sharjeel stated.

Pakistan Peoples Party Central Information Secretary and Member of the National Assembly Shazia Atta Marri also intervened, prompting the district administration to act. Following Marri’s involvement, Sanghar Deputy Commissioner Imran Hassan Khawaja dispatched medical teams to treat the injured camel.

Reports indicate that influential individuals responsible for mutilating the camel were initially shielded by Mangli police, who registered the case on behalf of the police rather than the camel’s owner.
