In most areas, mobile butchers will come for the injured cow, killing her 
right where she stands, so she doesn't have to ride ANYWHERE.  I think we 
have two such services here.  That slaughter solution is NOT available for 
horses in this country--although I was intrigued when Heather stated that 
that was an option in some areas of Europe.
