Issac - Zebu
Zebu, sometimes known as humped cattle, indicus cattle, or brahmin cattle are a type of domestic cattle originating in South Asia, particularly the Indian subcontinent. They are characterised by a fatty hump on their shoulders, drooping ears and a large dewlap. They are highly adapted to high temperatures, and are farmed throughout the tropical countries, both as pure zebu and as hybrids with taurine cattle, the other main type of domestic cattle. Zebu are used as draught oxen, as dairy cattle and as beef cattle, as well as for byproducts such as dung for fuel and manure.
Zebu, Isaac was found down this morning and he was not responsive. He was in shock, very cold and had low blood pressure. Everyone worked diligently trying to get him warmed back up. Despite all the efforts of staff, volunteers and the vet, unfortunately he was not able to recover and had to be euthanized. He will be missed.
