  • RE: Cows at Vulture Restaurants
    • Mark Hauswald, Director of Global Health Programs, University of New Mexico HSC

    I cannot vouch for all vulture feeding areas but in Nepal the cows are never killed. Elderly and infirm cows are bought from local farmers. They are then fed and treated by veterinarians. It is only when they die a natural death after being quarantined from diclofenac and related painkillers that they are fed to vultures. This is a particularly important point to the mostly Hindu population and one reason that the project is well accepted locally.
