The RSPCA has managed a 'sort of apology', to the Hindu community, over the killing of Gangotri (a Jersey x Belgian Blue cow) at Bhaktivedanta Manor and Temple. They are clearly trying to evade legal action, that has been in process, since that drastic event.

I wonder if this will now be an end to the matter.

It would probably be foolish to expect such an organisation to apologise fully and unreservedly.

This story appeared in March 2008:

It is alleged that the cow was under proper veterinary care and that she was recovering. The vets working with the RSPCA killed the cow without having discussed the case with the attending vets.
