Meat-loving cow eats chickens

Thursday, 8 March 2007

And now for something completely different! A Reuters report quoted here says:

WHEN dozens of chickens went missing from a remote West Bengal village, everyone blamed the neighborhood dogs.

But Ajit Ghosh, the owner of the missing chickens, eventually solved the puzzle when he caught his cow – a sacred animal for the Hindu family – gobbling up several of them at night.

“We were shocked to see our calf eating chickens alive,” Mr Ghosh said.

The family decided to stand guard at night on Monday at the cow shed which also served as a hen coop, after 48 chickens went missing in a month.

“Instead of the dogs, we watched in horror as the calf, whom we had fondly named Lal, sneak to the coop and grab the little ones with the precision of a jungle cat,” Gour Ghosh, his brother, said.

No sacred cow this!
