Seasonal traders dump unsold rawhide into the Padma River in Rajshahi on Sunday, August 2, 2020 Collected

Rawhides are being sold at the lowest price in Rajshahi this year

Seasonal traders have dumped unsold rawhides of sacrificial animals into the Padma river for failing to sell them at even a nominal price in Rajshahi.

Around 1,500 goat hides were dumped into the river near I-dam at Bulanpur in the district around noon on Sunday.

A Facebook user named Touhid Ferdous Tanmoy posted a picture and a video of rawhides being dumped into the river.

"Seasonal traders in Rajshahi are dumping rawhides into the river for not getting fair prices. In this way, our country's resources are going to waste and river water is also getting contaminated," he wrote in his Facebook post.

Rawhides are being sold at the lowest price in Rajshahi this year with cowhide selling atTk300-Tk400 per piece and goat hide at Tk10-Tk30 apiece, said locals.

Many people have also donated rawhides to madrasas or orphanages for not getting expected prices for those. The organizations are also in trouble with those in the absence of buyers. 

Many others could not sell hides of small goats and gave those to traders free of cost.

Abu Jafar, a resident of Kumarpur village in Godagari upazila, said he has sacrificed a cow worth Tk90,000. “Later, I was offered Tk200 for its hide. Goat hide was sold for as low as Tk5 here.”
