Despite precautionary measures and efforts, poultry experts have not succeeded to overcome Rani Khait disease in peacocks which resulted into the death of 16 more peacocks raising the overall death toll to 83.

Rani Khait disease which spread in some areas of Tharparkar some three weeks earlier has so far claimed lives of about seven dozen precious peacocks.

The disease firstly initiated from Mitthi area and later it turned into epidemic and engulfed the surrounding areas including Daiplo, Nangarparkar tehsils.

Wildlife department and four teams of poultry expert doctors were busy in the affected areas where affected peacocks were treated while others were vaccinated to save them of the dreadful diseases.

However, the local people expressing dissatisfaction over the medical teams have demanded sending more teams with experts and medicines to save the precious peacocks.
