This really got my goat

Or, rather, my cow, which I don't have. Anyway, you be the judge of this:

Hundreds of Hindus are to protest outside the RSPCA headquarters at the slaughter of a sick sacred cow at their temple while they were at worship. The RSPCA was accused of secretly killing Gangotri, a 13-year-old Belgian blue-jersey cross, by lethal injection at Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire.
This is the truth according to RSCPA:
In a statement, the RSPCA said: "We knew the cow has been suffering from painful and infected sores, her limbs had become wasted and her breathing difficult. Three separate vets, including from the Royal College of Vets, from Defra and an independent vet, have all agreed that the animal was suffering and should be immediately euthanised."
Do you know what, dear cow lovers - take this:

And pipe down...
