Shambu With Bovine TB Being Prevented from Slaughter

It is a bull otherwise destined for the abattoir, especially because it is afflicted with bovine TB. For a country slowly recovering from the mad cow disease that took a heavy toll of the country's economy and prestige, sending the six-year-old Freisian bull to the slaughterhouse is but a logical step.

They claim that the test shows only that there is a statistical possibility he could develop TB and their own vet has declared Shambo thoroughly healthy.

The matter then reached the House of Commons with MP Andrew Dismore tabling a motion urging the government to use its discretion to spare the animal considered sacred in Hinduism. Thousands have signed an online peti
