The proposal to slaughter a cow at every 2010 World Cup venue in a traditional South African blessing ritual at a cultural ceremony in each of the venues has left the cows in SA a shaken lot.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which enforces South Africa's statutory powers over animal welfare, has written to Fifa requesting participation in discussions with the South Africa 2010 Organising Committee about the ceremonies. The NSPCA has also said of the World Cup animal-sacrifice plan that it "does not condone or support the proposal".
Blatter,who is usually pretty good at making bovine statements,hasn't said anything yet.
No good news for the cows in South Africa yet
