BHUBANESWAR, India–A standard Indian wedding ceremony procession with pumping music, fireworks, dancing and a marching brass band in shiny jackets has been blamed for the loss of life of 63 chickens.
Ranjit Kumar Parida mentioned the get together was blasting out “ear-splitting noise” because it handed his poultry farm within the jap state of Odisha shortly earlier than midnight on Sunday.
“I requested the band operators to decrease the amount because the music was too noisy and terrifying the chickens. However they didn’t pay attention and the groom’s mates shouted at me,” Parida advised AFP.
A vet advised Parida the chickens had died of a coronary heart assault, and he filed a police grievance after the marriage organizers refused to pay compensation.
Zoology professor Suryakanta Mishra, who has authored a e book on animal conduct, advised the Hindustan Occasions that loud noise will increase the danger of heart problems in birds.
“Chickens are ruled by a circadian rhythm that’s managed by the pure mild/darkish cycle of day and evening.
“Sudden pleasure or stress resulting from loud music might disrupt their organic clock,” Mishra mentioned.
The story had a cheerful ending — apart from the chickens — after police satisfied the opponents to “resolve the matter mutually”.
“We now have not initiated any motion as (the poultry farmer) withdrew the grievance,” police official Droupadi Das mentioned.
