According to the Wikipedia entry, "After the festival, the meat, bones and hides of the animals are sold to companies in India."

In the Mail piece (the second link) there's a plea from Joanna Lumley to end the slaughter. So it must be wrong.

This festival confuses me. I thought Hindus treated cows as sacred (I know they are buffalo but there doesn't seem to be much difference between these ones and cows).

It's just a Nepal thing. Indian Hindus are appalled, apparently.

I dunno, there seems to be lots of attendees from the northern Indian states too. Anyway, it was probably simplistic of me to attribute a single attitude (bovines = holy) to a billion people.
