Hindu monks are to sue the RSPCA over the killing of a sacred cow at a Hertfordshire temple.

Six monks went to the charity's HQ in Horsham, West Sussex, to serve papers and they threatened to start legal proceedings over the death of Gangotri.

The Belgian blue-jersey cross was kept at Bhaktivedanta Manor temple, Watford.

The monks said while they were praying, an RSPCA vet put the cow down, last December. An RSPCA spokesman said they had avoided worship times.
