Furthermore, Dr Kamaliah said that her department received information relating to 40,473 animals affected by the floods, 17,403 of which were reported to have died due to drowning. She further commented,

“I believe the numbers could be more as there are still owners and breeders who have not reported the death or loss of their animals… During the floods, we also helped in moving the animals to safer places and during the post-flood period as well.”
