HOLY: Cops endeavour to protect cows' safety

Indian cops have found a new way to keep the country’s holy cows safe.

Cops are now sticking glow-in-the-dark strips on the horns of stray cattle to prevent motorists from crashing into the animals as they wander across roads at night.

Following a spate of crashes, traffic police in one district of Madhya Pradesh state have stuck orange radium reflective bands on the horns of 300 cows and bulls to help drivers spot them.

“Many drivers injured themselves or killed the cattle after running over them at night,” Kailash Chauhan, traffic police inspector for Balaghat district said.
