Anand, a 45-year-old resident from MGR Nagar near Palliagraharam in Thanjavur owns a bullock cart and one of the bulls went missing on Sunday morning. When Anand went looking for it, he could not trace it and until a neighbors spotted it lying near a field.
Anand soon rushed to the spot to find the bull bellowing and bleeding from one of its hind leg which was almost chopped off.

Unable to stand or rush to safety, the bull collapsed.
Anand rushed it to veterinarians who claimed the cut was too deep for them to treat or fix. Anand then took the bull back to his house and has been applying natural remedies to try and help the wound heal.
He has also lodged a complaint with the Nadukaveri police against Kamaraj and demanded action against him under the Act for prevention of cruelty to animals.
