That's according to a confidential report by Spanish government veterinarians seen by Reuters. They concluded that the cows that spent months aboard the ship and no longer fit for transport, an animal rights activist said the cows were kept in hellish conditions on the Kareem Allah, which docked in the Spanish port of Cartagena on Thursday.
