As these luckless beasts live in a part of India where the cow is not considered sacred, they will be grazed until they are 18 months old, when they will be turned loose in the woods and ruthlessly hunted down by men with moustaches, Uzis and Bowie knives. At first I thought this practice barabric, but after being asked to join a shoot, I'm here to tell you that nothing beats the thrill of plugging your first cow with a hollow tip round.
