SPANISH COWS TO BE HUNTED

The Council of Agriculture of Castilla and Leon have given permits to hunt
250 abandoned cows.

To date 70 cows, calves and bulls that were in the fields of the area of
La Cabrera, have been shot to death. According to the newspaper "El Pais"
dated 3.3.2003 the spectacle was terrifying: "The animals rolled in the
fields
more than 400 meters. Many of them screamed with pain until the hunters
used a firearm to terminate them, some of them suffering hours till
death gave
them peace. There were pregnant cows and also baby cows......."

According to the same source, the continuation of the hunt is scheduled
for next week.

ACTION!!
Time is running out!!  They still haven't  decided yet what to do with
them, please send emails saying that they must put the cows either in a
sanctuary or in a natural reserve. Spain has lots of natural reserves.
