小编摘要:一位动物保护积极分子说,一只两岁大的牛犊由于不肯被带往孟买的一间屠宰场而自行逃脱,最终保住了性命。

A 2-year-old calf saved his own hide on the day he refused to be led into a Mumbai slaughterhouse, an animal activist said.

The calf was being taken to an abattoir along with hundreds of buffaloes and goats when it charged into a nearby warehouse and kept butchers at bay until he was rescued the next day by animal activists.

J.C. Khanna of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said police called in his team on Monday evening after trying for seven hours to draw the animal out of the warehouse.

Khanna’s team was able to get close enough only on Tuesday morning and injected the frightened calf with a sedative. The calf is being treated for injuries incurred while scrambling around the warehouse.

“His body was bruised because he ran around the warehouse and was hit all over,”said Khanna. “But he is the luckiest animal out of so many thousands that were slaughtered that day. He saved his own life.”Monday was also the Muslim festival of Eid in Mumbai when sheep, cows, goats and bulls are sacrificed during the religious holiday.

Most people in Hindu-majority India, however, do not eat beef. Hindus worship cows and cow slaughter is limited only to states that have large Muslim populations.


一位动物保护积极分子说,一只两岁大的牛犊由于不肯被带往孟买的一间屠宰场而自行逃脱,最终保住了性命。

当这只牛犊正与数以百计的水牛和山羊一起被送进一间屠宰场时,它突然冲进了附近的一间货仓,并迫使屠夫们无法靠近,直到第二天被动物保护分子们救出。

防止虐待动物协会的J·C·哈纳说,星期一晚上,警方在花费了7个小时仍无法将该牛犊引出货仓后,不得不请他的小组前来帮忙。

星期二早上,哈纳的小组才得以靠近那只受惊的牛犊,并给它注射了镇静剂。接着,他们为该牛犊治伤,那些伤口都是它在货仓里奔逃时留下的。

“由于它在货仓里到处奔跑,它的身体被撞伤了,而且全身都是伤。”哈纳说道,“但是相对于那天数以千计被屠杀的动物来说,它已经算是最幸运的了。它挽救了自己的生命。”

星期一那天也是孟买穆斯林的古尔邦节。在这个宗教节日里,当地人通常都会宰杀绵羊、奶牛、山羊和公牛来献祭。

但是,在以印度教徒为主的印度,大多数人都是不吃牛肉的。印度教徒崇拜牛,所以,在印度,宰牛仅限于穆斯林人口聚集的各邦。

防止虐待动物协会(SPCA)
1866年4月,由政治家出身的亨利·伯格(Henry Bergh)创建,旨在向人类传达来自动物的声音。在SPCA里,动物得到喂养,其中健康或表现良好的动物甚至可以被领养。SPCA现已扩展至全世界,世界上有多个国家和地区建立起了相关组织,香港爱护动物协会(HKSPCA)就是其中之一。
古尔邦节(Eid-ul-Adha)
伊斯兰教的一个重大节日,又称为“牺牲节”或“宰牲节”。伊斯兰教将其教历的12月10日定为古尔邦节,我国使用的公历与伊斯兰教历每年有11天的日差,故每年的古尔邦节的公历日期不固定。按照传统规矩,节前,家家户户打扫干净,制作各种糕点,做新衣服,为节日做好准备。在古尔邦节这天,穆斯林要清晨沐浴更衣,到清真寺做礼拜(一年中规模最大的一次礼拜),上坟缅怀先人;从清真寺做完礼拜之后,便回家宰杀牛羊、煮肉做饭、施舍穷人、招待来宾。青年男女还会载歌载舞,开展各种庆祝活动。
