BHUBANESWAR, India – A conventional Indian marriage ceremony procession with pumping music, fireworks, dancing and a marching brass band in shiny jackets has been blamed for the demise of 63 chickens.
Ranjit Kumar Parida stated 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 quantity because the music was too noisy and terrifying the chickens. However they didn’t pay attention and the groom’s buddies shouted at me,” Parida instructed AFP.
A vet instructed 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 guide on animal habits, instructed the Hindustan Instances that loud noise will increase the chance of heart problems in birds.
“Chickens are ruled by a circadian rhythm that’s managed by the pure gentle/darkish cycle of day and night time.
“Sudden pleasure or stress attributable to loud music may disrupt their organic clock,” Mishra stated.
The story had a contented ending — aside from the chickens — after police satisfied the opponents to “resolve the matter mutually”.
“We’ve not initiated any motion as (the poultry farmer) withdrew the grievance,” police official Droupadi Das stated. — Agence France-Presse
