"In the Vedic culture those who are meat-eaters are recommended to eat the flesh of goats...hogs or other lower animals, but never the flesh of cows, the most important animals. While living, the cows give important service by giving milk, and even after death they...mak[e] available their skin, hooves and horns, which may be used in many ways. Nonetheless, the present human society is so ungrateful that they needlessly kill these innocent cows."
-- A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
