Police are on the hunt for the affected cows after a pensioner was arrested when a video of him having sex with at least two of the animals went viral.
The recording was seen by people around the world after it was shot in India, and reports in the country state that police in Wardha detained the 65-year-old sanitation worker on Friday.
Reports of men engaging in sexual activity with cows is strangely common in India, with a handful of arrests across the country already taking place this month.

The latest alleged culprit was named locally as Tulsidas Delikar after pictures and videos of him engaging in unnatural sex with cows from last week went viral.
They said following threats of demonstrations from activists, particularly cow vigilante groups, the police initiated action swiftly.
They said it happened in Hawaldarpura in Wardha city, next to an area where trash is dumped alongside some old government lavatory buildings.
A complainant named as Pradeep Talmale apparently was given clips and photographs of Delikar engaging in unnatural sex with cows.
It was later revealed Delikar is a cancer patient and cops told the news site his relatives claimed him to be mentally ill as well, but have not yet provided any supporting documentation to prove it.
According to Talmale, one of his friends had shown him some recordings from July 13 and pictures from July 14 in which Delikar was seen performing sex acts on two different cows.

When the acts were seen online, the police made a rapid arrest.
He is now facing accusations of unnatural sex, and severe deterrent measures are being taken, they added.
A medical examination of the accused will be vital, according to Satyavir Bandiwar, head of the Wardha police station.
As soon as the videos and pictures appeared on social media, legal action was taken against Delikar. The man's actions incensed some activists, but police reassured them of a thorough investigation to secure a conviction in the case, Bandiwar told TOI.
He stated that gathering evidence is now being done by an investigative team, although the police will make an effort to look for the cows as well.
