Do you hear about the Mowgli boy? If you don’t, Mowgli Boy or his full name Muhammad Syukur Khamis, 15, is famously known last year after he was photographed for his special affinity to his father’s herd. That photo also has gotten the grand prize (Street/People category) at the ‘Asian Geographic: Images of Asia 2018’ awards.
It was reported that at least 36 of all the buffaloes of Syukur’s father have died due to diseases. After the investigation, the reasons for death is due to Haemorrhagic Septicaemia (HS), which is an acute bacterial disease of cattle and buffaloes which usually occurs during monsoon. Muhammad Syukur also told the media that this is the first time that a large number of buffaloes have died at the same time in their farm that has been operating for the past 50 years
.Fortunately, his favourite buffaloes, Semek remains healthy. He also shared that they are trying to save as many buffaloes that they could. Good news is also that the other animals on their farm like cows and goats are unaffected by the disease. They also are in the process of burying buffaloes’ body.
Hopefully, everything will resolve soon!
