Doctors at a hospital in Chennai removed 52 kg plastic waste, syringes, nails, aluminium foil and coins from a six-year-old cow's stomach.
The surgery took place at Chennai's Madras Veterinary Hospital
Praising doctors who operated upon the cow, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami said the cow was brought to the hospital by its owner after it stopped eating properly and had difficulty excreting.
While examining the cow, the doctors found plastic waste inside its stomach and decided to remove it with an operation.
