Animal sacrifice and the World Cup

A proposal to bless South Africa's World Cup stadiums by slaughtering a cow in each one has caused concern among animal rights activists. The Makhonya Royal Trust, which put forward the idea, described the cattle killing ritual as a true African way of blessing the 2010 tournament. The row comes as a South African judge refused to stop a separate traditional Zulu bull-killing ceremony from going ahead, instead calling on parliament to look at the issue.
