Though cow is a sacred animal in India, is dying an unnatural death in India. The quest is who is responsible for the unnatural death of cow progeny in India, dairying practices, veterinary services, vaccination with substandard vaccines, veterinary administration involved in vaccine and drug quality monitoring or anyone else. Diseases including foot and mouth disease (FMD), hemorrhagic septicemia (HS), black leg/ black quarter (BQ), anthrax and John's disease (JD) are the common killers prevailing since ages in India despite the availability of vaccines and other measures to control and stamp out these.
