Probe reveals buffaloes drowned

The mysterious deaths of 36 buffaloes in Kampong Katimahar in the Brunei-Muara District prompted an investigation by the Agriculture and Agrifood Department under the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT). The buffaloes were found dead inside a pond owned by Kampong Katimahar Village Consultative Council members. Results from the investigation by the department’s Livestock Industry and Veterinary Services Division suggest that the animals may have drowned in the seven-foot deep pond which provides irrigation to surrounding farms.
