In a tragic incident, as many as five yaks have died after they came in contact with a live wire in a remote village in Arunachal’s Tawang district.

The incident comes as a big loss to the villagers who depend on yaks as a perennial source of income and livelihood. Yaks are known for their multiple products including butter, cheese and wool among others which are precious assets to the highlanders.

Meanwhile in a heart breaking video taken after the incident, a calf that has been left orphaned following the electrocution of its mother can be seen still trying to drink milk from the carcass of its dead mother.
