    Black Quarter will be on the hunt until the Gold Scripture is reinstalled in Nyakhar Lhakhang.

    Blackquater is dreaded disease of the animal and highly contigious to human in touch to the flesh. It can transmit to men through contact of blood/saliva/ any fluid of the infected or dead cattle. Consuming of meat is very fatal. So please beware of it and be very careful. There is no link with old Gold scripture, may the believe inherited from the ancient time by our grand parents.
