A Malacca-based livestock breeder is still reeling from the loss of his prized stud bull Vikram who had impregnated five cows at about the same time.
The Australian Holstien species bull went missing sometime in September, together with the expecting cows, from his farm in Serkam, Jasin. Two other female cattle have disappeared too.
“Vikram is like my own flesh and blood. He is very dear to me as my late mum gave me the money to buy him from another owner a couple of years ago.
“I believe my cows are still alive. No one in his or her right mind would slaughter a handsome romeo like Vikram or the pregnant cows,” he told the Sunday Star (Owner loses sleep over ‘stud bull’, 25 Nov 2018).
He told the newspaper he continued his parent’s tradition. They were rearing cows in Ayer Leleh.
On the incident, he said the ‘heartless thieves’ had dashed his dream of becoming a successful livestock breeder.
