    I wonder how many will go home to a meal of sirloin steak, roast beef or beefburgers.

    Roast in pieces is more likely.

    I think it's a load of bullocks but you can't let half a ton of meat go to waste.

    I get the feeling we're going to milk this one to death.

    I hear a rumour that a local dignitary was going to be present, Sir Loin.

    At least they won't just chuck the carcass away.

    Good thing it was shot, not shanked.

    I hear they have managed to get the support of some celebrities including Sandra Bullock, Captain Beefheart and Thora Herd.

    It was a sad fate the beef-el the poor animal, for sure, but I can't think of a better moomorial than a good pun run.
