Ponda: At least five cattle heads died and two were critical in an accident on the Goa-Karnataka national highway at Curti, on the outskirts of Ponda town, early Thursday morning. Though the bovines were on the roadside earth shoulders, police suspect that an unidentified speeding vehicle could have ran over them. Some locals found a herd of the bovines lying in a blood pool with some already dead along the highway soil shoulder, and later informed some animal lovers who provided primary aid to the injured animals. Some even called animal husbandry veterinarians to treat the animals. People also managed to transport three injured cows to Shikeri Goushala at Mayem, Bicholim.
