Can anyone explain to me why he is sacred?

to the Hindu's cows are sacred (I think) and Shambo is their particular bull inthat area- apparently

But can't they just get another one? Or do they have to be born to specific parents? Why is THAT bull sacred? [confused]

lots of shambo stuff here with what look like good defences re: DEFRA stance

" We could no more allow the slaughter of Shambo than we could the killing of a human being. Ultimately we would be willing to defend his life with our own." from the Skandavale website

I don't "get it" either. But religion is used to justify a lot of otherwise unacceptable things....
