Amid apprehension of mysterious killings of livestock in Churachandpur district of Manipur, a mass slaughter of ducks was reported at Kitana Panung under Irilbung police station on Monday morning.

Over 40 ducks were found slaughtered in a farm at Kitana Panung under Irilbung police station. A total of 75 ducks were in the farm and 35 were found alive hiding.

The mysterious mass slaughter of ducks was detected when the owner of the farm entered the farm for routine feeding, reports said.

Internal organs of all the slaughtered ducks were found missing. The owner, Ratan, said that bite marks were visible on all the dead ducks.

The owner suspected that the ducks were slaughter by some big animal while claiming that footprints of a big animal were found in the farm.

Each footprint measured around three inches, he added. 

A similar manner incident had occurred in Churachandpur district, and no trace of duck blood was found where the incident happened.

The mysterious mass slaughter of ducks in the valley district comes at a time when an uneasy calm had fallen for about a month following domestic animals found killed or partly torn without any trace of the killers or predators in some localities of the district.

The mysterious slaughters of livestock, including domesticated animals like dogs and cats, reportedly began from Chiengkawnpang locality where ducks and chicken were found dead with their internal organs missing.

The mysterious slaughter spread to other nearby localities, and consequently Churachandpur district administration constituted a special surveillance team to look into the mysterious incidents.

However, even after a month, the special surveillance team was yet to come up with an explaination regarding these mysterious deaths.

The strange incident has created fear and apprehension among the residents of the town who took turns to keep watch at night in their respective localities since such incidents were reported.
