Earlier, an incident similar to this occurred in Haryana when a bull ate about 40 grams of gold. A few members of the family took out their gold ornaments and kept them in a bowl. Unknowingly, someone filled the bowl with vegetable waste and threw it outside thinking it was kitchen waste. This valuable ‘waste’, was then eaten by the stray bull.

The family discovered that the bull ate the ornaments when they checked the CCTV footage in their house. It almost took them five hours to find the bull. Later they got it back to their home and hoped that they would be able to retrieve it from its dung.
