  • Spooked cow tramples Palestinian at Muslim feast...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- A spooked cow killed a Palestinian man who was trying to slaughter the beast on Saturday during the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha, a Gaza health official said.
    Muslims around the world slaughter sheep, cows and goats, during the four-day holiday that began Friday, giving away much of the meat to the poor. The Muslim holiday commemorates the sacrifice by the Prophet Ibrahim, known to Christians and Jews as Abraham.
    But accidents are common as people frequently buy animals to slaughter themselves instead of paying professional butchers. The festive atmosphere also tends to make the animals fidgety.
    The 52-year-old man who died was trampled to death, and another three people were seriously injured when the cow ran wild in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, said health official Ashraf al-Kidra.
    He said some 150 people were hospitalized in the Palestinian territory with injuries caused by animals trying to break away.

    In the past I've seen a lot of animal rights groups go nuts over this. It's not the prettiest of Muslim holidays...

    Commentators also were disapproving.
    "Killing an animal has standards," Sami Abu Ajwa pleaded on Gaza's Al-Quds radio Saturday.

    He said under Islamic law animals shouldn't see each other being killed, they should be soothed, fed water and slaughtered quickly with a sharp knife to minimize suffering.

    Those regulations are widely ignored through the Arab world, however.

                    Assorted Animals: 150
                    Assorted Muslims: 0

                    And that is just in the "Palestinian" area!

                    Wonder how many were taken down by gerbils?

                          I believe in animal rights and believe that when they are slaughtered for food it should be done professionally, quickly, and humanely. When that is not the case one cannot blame the cow for acting in self defense. Any of us would have done the same.

                            As if this matters. In the end the cow's dead either way.

                              Of course it matters. Would you rather die quickly, or slowly and painfully?
