COW’s, the only animal which are treated as mother, thought to be sacred and deeply respected by everyone in our country. But when these MAA (COWS) cease to produce milk are abandoned by their owners (or used family members when MAA produced milk). Despite providing for their livelihood of their owners for the most part of their lives, these COWS are left to be starve and die during their dry period or left as stray animal which either dies in road accidents or become mentally ill and tries to hurt people.
Today this revered animal suffers unimaginably at the hands of humans who exploit it incessantly. Cows are butchered mercilessly for their skin, meat and bones. Despite cow slaughter being illegal in most parts of the country, they are being killed mercilessly and brutally - legs chopped off, nails hammered into their skull, necks slowly cut, forcing them to die slow painful deaths. some stray cows are in so much worse conditions that they are infected with flesh eating maggots, some can’t even walk.
